Compaq Presario 061
I recently deleted a 'user account'. Now their is only one at start-up.
At about the same time the computer started to lock-up after a few minutes of use.
When I open task manager, it shows memory usage at 100%.
I see numerous processes going on, using considerable memory, linked to the deleted 'user account'. (Several instances of 'svchost.exe'. Only way out is to unplug computer.
Is there a way to get rid of these? They would seem to be unnecessary since the user account no longer exists.
Any help greatly appreciated.
