Access to administrative account

Apparently my teenage daughter deleted my administrative account. When the computer is turned on, it only accesses her user account. I don't know what to do. I cannot get into any of my files.

Is it possible that my guest account turn to administrator?


Guest accounts have limited rights and cannot have admin rights..
You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :- http://www.hirensbootcd.net/

Hello, Doreena.

There is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and then create a new account for yourself.

1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly
2. Access Safe Mode
3. Key in "Administrator" in Username, with no password.
4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts
5. Create a new account.
6. Logout, restart the computer and then log back in with your new account.

Hope this helps.

When my daughter brings up her itunes account the page comes up but just for a moment then the screen turns grey.


Try to see first if you have the latest iTunes installed on your computer. If you already have it installed, try to click Store in the left side of iTunes and login in again to your daughter's iTunes account and see if iTunes will turn grey again. If you can login to your daughter's iTunes account and she can see her transactions, account profile, etc., then the account is active and the reason for the grey out screen is because of your iTunes version. If you cannot login, you can try to access the link below to have your account password reset to be able to access it.
http://iforgot.apple.com

If it says that you're account has been disabled and you cannot reset your password, your only option is to call Apple and ask them to be able to access your account again.

I was given a compaq computer running Windows XP. It boots up to a previous user and is looking for that user's password. How can I reset password or access administrator account?


I would suggest you to try the following :

Boot the computer in safe mode.
Press F8 while booting the system, It will give you Windows Advance boot option, Select Safe mode and press Enter. You will see two accounts, Administrator and the Previous User's . Select the Administrator. If it allows you to log in, go to control Panel, User Accounts and delete the previous user's account and create a New user with your name. Reboot the computer in normal mode.

Hope this works. Please let me know if you need further Assistance. Your comments and ratings are highly appreciated.

Thank you for choosing Fixya

Changed my password and forgot it


I believe its f-10 during boot screen to access the restore partition....I do know its a F key so good luck......another thing you can do is press f-8 while booting...then restart the computer in safe mode, this should show the administration account and (providing you didnt password protect it) you can log in and access the control panel...then go to the user accounts section and delete the account in question, then create a new account (when you delete the old account save your files so you can access them from the new account. Hope this helps

Administrators password


if you have another user account with administrator access you can either remove the password i the user account field or you can try accessing the files of that particular user account and transfer it and just erase the user account and create a new one. vista does not have any backdoor to access using the disk unlike xp
