I can't login to my email account, Its showing that it's been deleted.


You can't restore a recently deleted user if:
  • The deleted account's username matches an existing group, username, or email alias that's been created in the meantime. If it does, you'll see a "username already exists" error message.
  • You don't have an available user license, in which case you'll see a "domain is over user limit" error message.
To restore a recently deleted user:
  1. Sign in to the Google Admin console.
  2. Click Users.
  3. Under Filters at the side of the user list, choose the Recently deleted users filter. If you don't see Filters, click .
  4. Check the box next to the user you want to restore. You can restore only one user at a time. If the user doesn't appear in this list, the account was permanently deleted and can no longer be restored.
  5. Click .
  6. If you have multiple organizational units, select the unit to which you want to assign the user.
The Admin console restores the account as suspended if the restored user's Drive data was transferred before the user was deleted, or if the user was suspended at the time the account was deleted. Otherwise, the user appears in the organization you specified when restoring the user.

Restoring an Acer Extensa 5620 to factory defaults


LOL, good luck using the disks. Most times they don't work.

Why not just create a user account with the friends name then sign on using the account you just created and delete the other user accounts. It will delete all your My Documents folder (music, pictures, videos, documents).

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and select the option to create a new user account. Use your friends name to create the account then restart the computer. When it boots back up, log in using the name of the newly created account. Then click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and select a user account to delete. When prompted about saving anything for the account select the option to delete everything associated with the account.

Now if you want to remove any programs after you've deleted the accounts click Start/Programs and search the program list for folders to uninstall. If it has an uninstall option, take it.

Any program you want to delete that is not in a folder in the program list or does not have an uninstall option can be deleted by clicking Start/Control Panel then look for Add or Remove Programs, or Program Features or Uninstall Program (just depends on your operating system). Open it and let it populate the programs, then highlight the program you want to uninstall by clicking it and select Remove or Uninstall.

I want to know how to delete a standerd user account?


I you are using Windows, click "Start" then "Control Panel" then "User Accounts," then "Change an Account." Choose the account you wish to delete, then click "Delete Account" it will ask you if you want to keep the account's files, say yes only if you had something important on that account. NOTE:you can only delete accounts if you are a administrator.
If you are using a Mac, click "System Preferences" then "Accounts" then select the account you wish to delete and click the little minus sign at the bottom. NOTE: Like Windows, you can only delete accounts if you are an administrator.

Unless you can get hold of a Linux password recovery program to reset or remove the password from the Windows Administrator's login, you will need to reinstall Windows again, the device drivers and your programs.
In this process you will lose all your data that is stored on your hard drive.
If you want to save your data before you install Windows, remove the hard drive, connect it to an USB hard drive adapter (most likely you will need power to the hard drive) and plug it into the USB port of a working computer. This computer will see it as an external hard drive, copy your data you require so you can load it back onto your computer after you installed Windows.
OR
You can connect your hard drive into a working computer on the 2nd IDE controller, then you can see this drive and copy your data files.

When I turn on the computer it takes me to the screen where your name is and asks for a password. I have tried everything to get in but it will not accept any pass word I type in. I'm not exactly sure...


This will only works if your computer(hopes windows running) has no password in safe mode.

just go to safe mode by pressin f8 key and then enter through administrator credits not the user name.
then go to the control panel and go to user accounts and then create a new account with admin credits and then restart and login with ur new account.
after that again go to user accounts from safe mode in control panel and delete the account that is password protected(which u forgot).
then the computer will work again.

WARNING- personal data in mydocuments and other folder related to the account will be deleted. if you didn't backup the account before deleting.
do backup from the new account.
