HI
TecMerc
on Buzzbr recent successfull fix he said he had only one user account using xp

I'm not a big xp user but would not there be and administrative account and a user account

should each these have to be cleaned?
or do you have to actually set up a seperate admin or user account default being only one account

just curious

I'm quite sure he meant his acct and admin, as that is how it would ahve to be set up. I have 2 accts, admin, and mine, there is a 'guest', but by default it is inactvie.

Read here about accts:

This is how most single users have their machines set up. Admin accts are not used, or, at least, they shouldn't be save for when required to make changes to the machine.

I feel better
I'd hate for bad stuff to be hiding in the admin account after all of the work you went to
on my windows 2000 pro machines I usually have 2
the admin for me and the user for the user
In that case I think I would clean both
