    If you cannot delete these accounts, I assume you mean the accounts under Documents and Settings, under your local Admin account, try it in Safe Mode. If SM doesn't work, try it under Safe Mode Command Prompt and remove the folders by typing:

    del /f /q foldername

    Ok, more information would be helpful. I have never seen a message saying a folder is "private".... Did you actually try removing the files from the command prompt?
