Cannot login to user account on windows computer


Computer administrators have access to make certain changes on a computer that other users may not have.

Administrators have full freedom to install and uninstall programs, move files around and make changes to the Windows registry.

There are actually three ways that one may become the administrator on their computer; during the initial setup, change the settings in the Control Panel or by having the current administrator change the permissions on the account.

Set up an account during the initial setup of Windows on the computer.

During the setup wizard, you will be asked to set up an administrator account.
Choose the account name, user icon and password to set up the administrator account.

Step 1.
Change your account permissions if there isn't an administrator account currently setup.
During some installations Windows users were allowed to install the program without setting up an administrator account.

Click on "Start" then "Control Panel" to open the Control Panel.

Click on "Users and Accounts" or "Users Accounts and Family Safety".
Click on "User Accounts."

Click on "Add or remove user accounts" then "create a new account".

Assign the new account administrative privileges, a user name and password.
Click "OK" and close all windows. Log in under the new Administrator account.

Have the current administrator change your account privileges from "User" to "Administrator". She can do this by following the same steps described in Step 1.

Instead of creating a new account, she must click on your current account and then apply the new permissions.

Could not initialize BDE.: network initialization failed


you need to go to the BDE Administrator (control panel) and change the location of the network control file (the net file).. most modern windows installations won't let you write to the root of a drive.. and when you install on a network, do the same thing, but point to someplace every machine can get to.. in that case, the net file folder and all shared data MUST be exactly the same from every machine..

System Administrator


As for logging in as Administrator try leaving the password area blank and that should get you in. As for the Control Panel Icon, if it's not showing up in your start menu you can open it's properties and through the customization function you can add it again.
