    How to remove unwanted user account folders.\


    In the progression from the December build ( I forget its number) to 10049 I have wound up with an unwanted user account in my C:\Users folder. It doesn't show up in Control Panel/User Accounts so I can't remove it via that route and if I try do deleteit from C:/Users by right clicking the delete I can't do it. I've tried using the built in Administrator account but that didn't work either.

    Can someone tell me how I can rid my self of the unwanted folder?

    Thank you.
