    You will need to take ownership of the folder as you won't have permission to open it

    Hello Oxlzlope,

    If you haven't already, you might see if you may be able to delete the user profile while signed in to the built-in Administrator account.

    You should be able to use Option Four below to enable the built-in Administrator account at boot.

    Once you have, sign in to the built-in Administrator account, and make your new account "Dan" an administrator.
