hello;

Go to computer > right click and Manage > Local users and Groups > Users , and manage the users you want, delete what you want and what you want :).

Let us know about it.

ok,
computer > right click ... Done
Manage .... Done

Where ( Local users and Groups > Users  ) ????
"Local users and Groups" is disabled in Windows Home Premium.

You can't create a new user profile just by copying a folder into the Users folder. You have to first create the user, then once the user profile is created you can copy files and folders into the new profile's folder.

Here's instructions for creating the new profile, then copying the files into it:
