    If you have created a diffrent profile, and have deleted the "Elaine" profile, You may safely delete that folder.. Be warned that there about 4-10 files there that M$ makes very difficult to delete.. Please make sure you can see hidden files, see Protected System files and have your system set a restore point before you really delete them in-case something stupid happens..

    You can edit those options in "My Computer" > Tools > Folder Options.

    You could change your name. That would fix it. Seriously, if you want to avoid reregistering XP just live with it.

    Elaine was not very smart , kind but not smart . You never sell used Computers with your info on it . Wipe it out first when " you sell it " The O/S is their problem .
