well you have come to the right place

7 Admins that crazy, logon your mail Admin account (the one you want to keep) and goto:

Contol Pannel > User Accounts

You can click on the username and delete them from there or if the Admins are not listed try:

Contol Pannel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management

Find the folder on the left-hand side named:
Local users and groups

when you click that click on the folder named Users and to delete a user right-click them are select delete.

Default Let me add...

You should log on as the admin that was created when the os was installed. The rest appear to be add ons.
I sure hope this is your machine or we're gonna be in the soup...

In the soup is a colloquial phrase meaning in trouble.

As far as the folders inside of the documents and seting folder goes.

You can safely delete any folder inside of that folder, and if indeed the user does exit and logs on their profile folder will be recreated at logon.

how did you end up with 7 administrators? if you don't add them, they shouldn't be there. i'm suspecting foul play, call the master-at-arms.

i don't think they are admins, may them services or maybe the PC company make loads just incase a few don't let them log in? Are they have a password?
