    I read the instructions and I see two potential problems:
    There are no potential or even imaginary problems in Sysprep procedure.

    If I understand it correctly, even though I have deleted the FP user and there is now only the USER default user, after the procedure I still won't be able to add a FP user. If so, this does not solve my problem..
    Not an offence, just a fact based on your previous posts: Your posts show that you don't even know how you created this FP user account, that you are not very familiar with creating / removing / renaming user accounts in Windows. Instructions given solve your issue and let you start from scratch, without losing your personal files and installed software.

    If you do not know if user account FP exists or not, you'll find it out when following the instructions when it's time to create new initial admin account. If FP exists as an already existing username, you can't use that name.

    Extract from step 9 in instructions in my previous post:

    Please notice: when setting up your new admin user account as told in above tutorial you cannot use any existing username

    Will the procedure make any other changes to the system other than to the user mgmt component? I am running W10 v.1511 which is configured in various ways not to check or accept ANY Windows updates of ANY kind. If the procedure changes that configuration and/or trigger any updates to the system, then it is not a solution. The reason I wanted a renamed folder is because I wanted to have both of my systems as similar as possible, but not at the price of risking buggy MS updates or adding back all sorts of W10 bloatware that I removed.
    In all honesty I have to admit that I lost all interest in this thread after reading the highlighted part in above quote. I will not help nor have I ever helped to mismanage a computer. I will unsubscribe after posting this post.

    Sysprep when in on an existing system creates a new machine SID and resets some core Windows settings to defaults. It does not change Windows registry other than what's needed to register new SID both for the machine and initial admin user created during OOBE. It does not touch installed software, drivers, user data and such.

    Please advise.
    Advice: do as told in those simple instructions if you want a permanent solution to your issue. If continuing mismanaging your PC (no updates) is more important, continue trying to play with user accounts and forget the instructions.

    A very sincere,

    I gave up on the idea anyway -- I can manage without it.

    But I suggest you educate yourself and FAST: FYI, there is much more risk from Windows update today and spying than from anything else. Do yourself a favor and read here thoroughly:


    If you do you'll find out that it's Microsoft that mismanages user computers, I am just trying to keep mine working.
    So please.

    As I have no interest in your denigration of how I protect my computer from damage. It's up to you to ignore reality, but then don't dismiss others who choose not to.

    And BTW:

    Regarding the user name: The reason I was asking is because after I renamed the default user back to USER and there was NO user with FP name, the system would still not allow me to create a FP user.

    Regarding SYSPREP: you did say that it "reset certain Windows settings to defaults", which is precisely what I was concerned with.
