Hi,
My name is ***** ***** of the expert in computer category. I would like to assist you with your issue and would be your next active expert.

Since your concern is about personal data, this is what you have to do...

1: Create new user profile which has administrative previlege
See how to create new user in windows xp
2: Now logoff from current user profile which is to be deleted
Note: Please take necessary backup before logging off machine
3: Login to new profile
4: Delete your windows user profile
5: Now to delete your personal datas, Open C:\Documents and Setting\ select your profile and delete
That's all

You know personal datas are preserved in your profile. So just delete it.

The personal files on other drives(D drive or E drive) needs to be deleted manually..

Please let me know if you have any query...
I have trouble doing this procedure, please let me know i shall help you to complete procedure

Thanks,
Fiyaz
