    Sometimes it comes up on screen with security purpose. In order to overcome the issue, follow the procedure:

    -> First of all, you should log on to PC by using an account with admin privileges
    -> Click on the Start button and click on the Pic that is associated with your account at Top
    -> Now, select the option Manage another account
    -> After this User Account Control box will open, keep continue
    -> Now, select your account that you want to be deleted and delete it
    -> If the system asks to keep files from deleted account then choose the option Keep Files
    -> If you don’t want to keep the files then delete it.

    Process finished, now check the issue. It should be resolved now.
