Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I created a user account last night, and when i started my computer this morning, only one user account is available (the new one); the other one (Adminstrator) is no longer there. as far as i know, no one has deleted the Administrator account. how do i recover it?
You actually probably created the new account as an admin. You don't really need to recover it. You just use this account as your admin account. You can then create another non admin account now and have everyone else besides the "admin" likely being you, can use the non admin account. All your files can still be found in "rootdrive:\Documents and settings\administrator
There you can find all your documents that you had in My documents under the administrator account.
Hope this helps,
