No Users on User Accounts

I don't know which user is the administrator. It is not documented under any
names. When I open User Accounts from Control Panel in safe mode there are
no users listed. How can I access the users? Why aren't they listed?

The only account which is a member of the Administrators Group and which is
installed by default is the "administrator" account. The Guest account is
also installed by default.
Updates sometimes add accounts such as Help_Assistant and Support_xxxxxxxx
(where xxxxxxx is a hex number). By default these accounts have a blank
password, but you can change the password if you choose.

You created all other accounts. You are supposed to keep up with what you
have done.

The User Account tab (when accessed by an unprivileged account) only lists
accounts which are members of the Users Group. There are none on your
computer

To find out more:
Go to the Control Panel
Select Administrative Tools
Select Computer Management
Select Local Users and Groups
Select Users
This will show a list of all accounts on the computer, and a brief
description of the purpose of the account.
Right click an account
Select properties
Select "Member of"
This will show which group the account belongs to

There was no option for Local Users and Groups under Computer Management.
Where else might I find that?

You didn't see this item in the left pane?
