Default how much windows xp bs can i delete?

i want to know in windows XP, is it gonna fall apart if I delete the All users and Default users in documents and settings? I am, and always will be the only user and i see no point in keeping extra crap around that i have to sift through to find malware or to defrag. some may say if its not bothering than let it be, but I say if it does nothing than why keep it?

is doing the above action gonna destabilize my system? while i am at at, can i delete the windows fonts folder, and the accessibility options?

Your account ties into those accounts. If you delete those directories, a lot of stuff will disappear. A lot of programs install settings into those folders so other users of a computer can use those programs as well. I wouldn't delete them.

Download Auslogics Disk Defrag and Registry Cleaner. They are both free programs and are more efficient than Windows Disk Defragmenter.
