WinXP Admin User questions

First a some background. I've got a spare WinXP computer in my bedroom that I've got connected to my monitor and keyboard via KVM. I use it to toggle between computers when I'm gaming so I can look something up on the internet or play music on. I moved all of my music over to it a while back and I sync up my iPod on there now. Well last week I was planning on moving this computer to my living room and swapping that computer as my secondary in my computer room and I created a Limited User Account as well as a new Admin User with my name on it. All my music was on the Administrator User and now when I boot up the computer the Administrator User no longer shows up, only the new Admin User with my name on it and the Limited User. I can only access the Administrator User it in Safe Mode.

Is there a way I can remove the new Admin User I created? I'd hate to have to transfer all my music, song ratings, play lists, etc from iTunes from the Administrator User to a new one (it's looking to be a PITA with iTunes) if I can just get away with keeping the original Administrator User and 3 or so Limited User Accounts.

That ain't going to happen. I'll just move everything over to the new Admin User I created but like I said it sounds like it's going to be a PITA

Linky no worky but that clues me in on what to look for. Thanks man.

Ya, copying and pasting the stuff would have worked just fine if I did need the settings for some of the programs in there (mainly iTunes). This just saves me the hassle. Thanks.
