Hi garfield933,

You say that you can still access your FB account with the old password.

If this is the case and you can’t get FB to delete the account. Go into your account and delete everything, Pictures, Posts, Comments, Profile information.

Go into your messages and from the actions tab choose delete messages. You will have to do this for each friend you have messaged.

Once you have deleted everything, block any friends in your list, this will remove any links between your old account and theirs. If you just unfriend them there may be some links left to your old account.

Once everything is deleted change the profile name so no one will know it was your account.

Now change the password to something long and complicated that you will not remember and deactivate what's left of the account..

Now with no personal inform the FB account is nothing to do with you anymore and with no access you can forget about it.

Like @simon mentioned, delete everything, block everyone then walk through the process of deleting your account following the steps here:

Hey guys

just a short note to say - I have managed to deactivate my FB account already!!!!! yes!!!

sharing what I have done - here's what I do

(1) instead of changing my profile name 1st - what I have done is - changed my password 1st. somehow, I had a hitch feel that FB itself had forgotten my password hence it prompted wrong password each time I keyed in.

(2) so I changed my password. then, changed my profile name. then, unclick the email to my current email and select the email "link" to FB

(3) wah-lah......finally I received an email (my initial email address) from FB that my account is deactivated!!!!!

TQ all for all the help rendered here. TQ for being here to listen to my "woes" always. now somehow I felt ease of mind that this is out from my mind now

I hear that one easy way to automatically delete your Facebook photo is to upload pornography as your main profile pic. Not the most ethical way to do it, but Facebook will delete your account for you. Just make sure to clear out all of your personal information manually before you do it.

You could try changing your password to something really simple before deleting.

Hi Steve

I saw your link. thxs for the help really. ok.....as of now, I have deleted ALL my photos, status update, messages. so I am not suppose to "unfriend" my friends but blocked right?

but the thing that puzzled me - ok, I gone through those steps in your boxes - keying in my password and the security check word. each time I click "ok" that is when I was prompted with "wrong password"!!! argh..... why cant they simply say "cannot be delete due to blah blah blah......" rather than indicating as "wrong password" it was so misleading!!!

it is really getting my nerves

I really give up now.....I am really totally lost!! tried all suggested ways and FB seemed to be STILL on my back!!! very upsetting!!!
