Deleting Users

I am using Windows 98. How do you delete a Users preferences or the Users
name and create a single User.When I check the All Users box in Passwords ,Windows restarts in the preferences I don't want.
Thanks

Once you change it to "all users use the same settings" then all you have to do is change the setting to what you want and they will stay the same for everybody

has a log on screen that I don't want.
If i log on as another user the logon doesn't appear.I have tried to delete Logon by most means found using EE search.Thought i would try this way but could be wasting your time.Thanks

Have you tried deleting \Windows\*.PWL? This will delete all logon passwords,causing Windows to request a new one for each user the next time that user logs on.If you then supply a blank password,it won't ask any more.

All of your individual settings (desktop icons, etc.) are in the C:\Windows\Profiles folder. If you delete all of the users, then Windows will revert back to using just plain old C:\Windows\Desktop. All you would need to do would be to copy everything from Windows\Profiles back.
