Right click on My computer, then select manage, then click on Local Users and groups, then over on the right double click on users folder, then right click on a blank spot under the last user listed and select New User. Under the user name field type in what you want to call the user. Full name and description are optional and are not necessary to fill out. Type in the pw twice in the password field.
Uncheck the "User must change password at next logon" checkbox and then click on "Password never expires" checkbox. Then click on Create. Now select the new user and right click on it and select properties. Click on the member of tab and click on the add button. Type in administrators and click on ok.

You now have a new user that is an administrator that only you can use. Beware once you do this your desktop icons and favorites WILL NOT TRNASFER TO THE NEW USER. You can manually copy these over by poking around under "c:\documents and settings\(*example user)\desktop or \favorites \my documents etc" and copying to the same location to your new user account.

    you may need to change the login style in order to login with your new account, or you can just delete the users on the comptuer that don't have or have known pw's.



    The professional style is done this way. Click on Start, Control Panel, Then select user accounts then click on change the way users log on or off and make sure the "Use The Welcome Screen" checkbox is NOT checked.

Point your web browser at http://www.facebook.com

If another account comes up, log out of it by clicking the down-pointing triangle in the upper-right then clicking "Log Out."

If you then still can't log in to your account, click the "Forgot your password?" link located just below the password box on the login page.

Replaced coolant temp sensor like diagnostic code said too didnt help none.it runs ok going down hiway but when i slow down or come to a stop it stalls out wont idle on its own.


There a 2 coolant temp sensors. One for the guage and the other for the computor. You need to replace the one for the computor. With a faulty coolant temp sensor for the computor, it doesn't recognize a cold start to cycle. You know when the engine idles higher when you first start it up in moring then the idle drops as the motor warms up.

I need to add a registration code but i have to log in as an administrator to put the code in how do i do this with windows 7 without screwing up my computor


hi
by adding ur registration code you mean you are instaling a program and want to put its serial number?

if so, you need to know your local administrator password

-when you log in is there any other user accounts than the on you use try to log on by on of them

- try to run the program that you are installing in administrator mode.
-right click on the installing program that you run.
-choose run as administrator.


all the best

My hp computor screen keeps going white how do i stop it


Check to make sure the cable is connected securely to both the computer and monitor. From the front of the monitor, use the buttons to reset to the factory defaults.
Make sure your video card is firmly in place (if you have added a video card). Also, update your video drivers.
Hope this helps.

Anti Virus


Here is what I would do.

First I would start off by downloading the free trial of ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus. Afterward I would scan my system (In-Depth Scan) with the free trial of NOD32 (It doesn't use a lot of system resources). Next I would download the free version of Ad-Aware 2008. After the anti-virus scan finished I would scan my system with Ad-Aware (Full Scan). Next I would download and install Spybot Search & Destroy. After Ad-Aware finishes scanning I would start a scan with Spybot. Next I would download and install AVG Anti-Rootkit Free. After Spybot finishes scanning I would run an in-depth search on all hard-drives with the use of AVG Anti-Rootkit Free.

If that doesn't whack it, fighting this thing might not be worth it. Reinstall the windows operating system after you back up any files which you absolutely HAVE to keep.
