I'm the one and only User of this PC. Why am I and and my CPU & Hard Drive
forced to manage two Administrator accounts, a All Users account, a Default
User account and ....?

Not sure what you mean by "manage"? The only account that you need to manage
is your single account.

There is no speciifc All Users account or Default account. These are just
optional features that can be used when configuring a new user account or
installing a program, if you wish.

After trying to upgrade to Vista I had to run a full HP_Recovery. This
involves formating C: and then reinstalling HP WinXP Media Center. Under
Documents and Settings I have the following Folders:

Administrator - Size on disk 32.3 MB Contains 133 Files, 79 Folders
All Users - Size on disk 4.80 GB Contains 3 536 Files, 261
Folders
Default User - Size on disk 31.9 MB Contains 134 Files, 79 Folders
Hidden
HP_Administrator - Size on disk 7.25 GB Contains 7 628 Files, 753 Folders
LocalService - Size on disk 764 KB Contains 26 Files, 40 Folders
Hidden
NetworkService - Size on disk 536 KB Contains 8 Files, 26 Folders
Hidden

On my previous PC running WinXP Home Edition I deleted the All Users and
Default User Folders - After rebooting they were back and in addition All
Users.Windows and Default User.Windows folders were created.

Also on my previous PC I tried to connect to a older PC with a crossed
seriai cable - I managed to get the 'Network' to connect and my Admin
account folder " Dave" spawned "Dave.TOYBOX" and "Dave~1~TOY".

I spend a lot of time Downloading / Trying out / Deleting Programs/Garbage.
For every programer that lets me decide were I want to Download\UnZip\Install
there seems to be a few that have their own ideas were the files should go.

If the extra Folders are actually required then perhaps a One User Option
could force all programs\data to the Administrator folder and allow only
shortcuts in the extra folders which could then be hidden.
