Well.. you should know one thing : 
there is ONE and only one admin user with UID = 1...

Once deleted, you may try to change the ID field of res_users table to 1, in order to make that user superuser.. 

but that is not recomended... even if you know db administration and odoo more than average.. 


it you are at novice level.. only thing left for you is to create new database.. 
and remember NOT to delete ADMIN user ever!... you can rename it at your will..

because no other user will ever get UID 1, and gain unrestricted superuser status in odoo...
