      Hey polarvilla,

      welcome to the forums!

      Do you see the "elephant" user with the "net user" command?

      Start -> Run -> "cmd" -> Enter -> "net user" -> Enter

      This should give you a list of all user(name)s installed on your system. With /delete you should be able to delete it - if ot - try running the command line with administrator privileges!
