User Accounts Internet Explorer Script Error

Guest

I have XP Home Edition fully updated. I want to give my computer to "Al",
I'm named "Tom". I was the sole administrative user. I naively thought I
could just rename my account to Al but then found out I needed to copy my
profile over. So I renamed my account back to Tom and created a new admin
account for Al. But when I try to access user accounts logged on as Al (or
as Administrator in safe mode), I get Internet Explorer Script Error.
Everything locks up and I have to log out with the Task manager. I don't
want to give a machine to someone where he cannot access User Accounts. Any
suggestions on what is going wrong and how to fix it? I did a system restore
and I could access User Accounts in safe mode as Administrator until I logged
on as Al. I can still access User Accounts logged on as Tom.

In all cases of computers changing hands I recommend a complete
format/install. This way the new user will not collect the
troubles/misdeeds of the last user.

I booted from my D: drive (which is a 9/4 Ghost clone of my C: drive). This
clone was before I started doing anything to my system. I created an an Al
admin account and was not able to access User Accounts due to the Script
Error. I wonder if the nasty XP problem would not just come back after hours
of backing up to CD using FAST and reinstalling all my programs (which I am
giving away since most do not work on Vista).
