Which account are you deleting? A random one or one that's like the admin?

Was the admin account that you're trying to delete the ORIGINAL admin account?

Ok, then, in that case, I think that it's just the cpu trying to delete a whole account... if the account is big, it might take a while...

Yeah, that could be it. Remember... it's kind of like installation... it might take a while. If you just let the comp do its thing it might just delete the account successdfully and you won't have anymore worries....

Deleting the main original admin account should throw an error, not crash your whole system.

I think something got hosed - you probably want to reinstall Windows at this point

It may be just an account for you, but Windows relies on it when emergencies occur
