Win XP strange folder named Userpass

Hi, I have a rarely used XP Home machine that
was having some issues that necessitated re-
creating a user account. Whilst copying over
the users documents I came across a folder
called 'userpass' in the original user's
Documents & Settings folder that is not
accessible from any account & cannot be
copied. In fact when it ground to a halt at that
point I logged off & onto the other user and the
system demanded passwords for each
account!!, none had ever been set up.
Managed to get past that by restarting in safe
mode which it did quite happily.

Can't find a program that would have created
the folder so has anyone got any ideas what it
is & how I can access/delete it?

Thanks in advance
