How do i change my password when im on as a guest


Which operating system are you on ?

Windows allows you to create a guest account that is limited in terms of its ability to change settings and download content and software. At times, you may want to reset this account's password, which is easily accomplished.

Log into the system as the administrator. Click the "Start" button and then "Control Panel." Choose "Administrative Tools" and choose "Computer Management." Click "Local Users and Groups" in the left column and then "Users." Right-click "Guest" in the main menu and choose "Properties." Enter the old and new passwords. Confirm the password. Click "Next" and "Finish."

I want to remove a second id but keep my main id account


Go to Administrative Tools --> Computer Management. On the left hand side you should see Local Users and Groups. Click users. In the main it will list the local users for your computer. Just right click the user name and select delete. BTW, you cannot delete the user that you are signed in as. You will need to be signed in under a separate user than the one you wish to delete. Given that your description states that you are wanting to remove a secondary account then I don't see any of this being an issue.

Hi i need to restore my Phillips iqor computer to factory settings as i am getting rid if it and don't want to leave my personal information on it


You don't have to go thru all that trouble to get rid of your personal information. First just create a new user account with administrative rights that the person who is getting your computer will use. After you create the new user account reboot the computer and log on with the new account you created. Then Delete your old user account. It will delete all your documents, music, pictures, videos.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts then create the new user account with Administrative Rights (not limited).

Reboot and and log on with the user account you just created.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Account and select the account you want to delete and Delete it. When asked about files to save, you want to delete everything associated with the account you are deleting.

If you have more than one user account you want to delete, do the same thing for it.

My administrator account is corrupt and i can not log into it, but luckily i have the guest account turned on but with this account i can not create a new account like an administrator one. so how do i...


Without using 3rd party pay-for tools, I would recommend locating the Windows CD that came with the machine. I would then boot to the CD, and use the Recovery Console option. When you get into the recovery console, you should be able to log in using the administrator password only. This doesn't load the Administrator profile, it just uses the password for permissions reasons. I would then navigate to the Documents and Settings folder (assuming this is XP) and rename the Administrator profile folder to something else. Once you rename this folder, restart the computer, log in as Administrator again, and Windows will create a new profile for the Administrator, and leave your old one alone. Once you're logged in, you can browse to the old profile and get your files and pictures back.
