.webserver folder

On my XP home PC

I have a duplicate folder in my documents.

I may have named my PC as "newuser" initialy but since then
i changed it.

in my "my computers/users/" I see my current folder, but I also see a folder called newuser.webserver in addition to the old newuser folder.
I would like to know how that was created and how to remove it.

I don't recall ever trying to configure this pc as a webserver, but would like to know what I did..

"newuser" Not found in User Accounts

In reply to: Go to Control Panel . . .

The user account "newuser' was already deleted though User accounts in Cont PANEL.

But still comes up 2 folders in the Documents & Settings folder as "newuser" & "newuser.webserver"

The current Active user is "owner", which is what is logged into.

other than "guest" there are no other users to switch to, or located in the add or remove users section of control user accounts in Cont panel.
