Some How my user is making me problems and working slow and another user in my pc is working great.

I want to delete my acount but not to loose all the info. Is there anyway to backup all the user info, delete it, and create a new one and over write the old info.

Thank you!

I have used this method to restore user settings on a clean istall of Win Xp (which I have had to do more often than I would like).

Change folder options to show hidden files.
Goto C(?):\Documents and Settings\(Your User Name)
Copy ALL of the Files and Folders
Delete your problematic account
Reboot
Create your new account
Copy all of your old folders into the new user directory
Everything Should Be as you want. If you want to test it first, create a new account and copy all of your settings there.

Good Luck!
