User Accounts

In xp I have a user account created during setup called 'abc' which is part
of the admin group. I also have the default administrator account.
I want to delete the 'abc' account but I'm hesitant because I feel that I
woont be able to logon then withthe administrator account.
Reason is because when I go to switch users it only shows me the default
'guest account' and the account I'm currently logged on with 'abc'. It doesnt
show me the default administrator account.

Can I delete the 'abc' account safely?
Thanks.

You'll need to be logged on with *another* administrator account to
delete the 'abc' account. You're not thinking of using the built-in
Administrator account for your day to day use, are you?

Thats the problem though, for some reason I cant log in as the Administrator
account, I never get prompted for it. It's there in users and groups though.

I'm logged on as abc account and want to delete this account, run sysprep
and thats it, so I can captue the image and then restore it to another
machine.

Logoff and then hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice and see if you get to a logon
screen. Or enter "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes) in the
Start menu Run box and change the way users log on.
