Cant install software, account permissions


The only solution is to reinstall the OS. Next time you get the urge to delete an administrator account, make sure you create a user account with full administrator privileges, before delete the previouss admin account.

TO BREAK PASSWORD ON TOSHIBA LAPTOP A135-2266


Here is a simple way to access Windows XP with Administrator rights and privileges if you have password protected your User account on your Windows XP system and can't remember the password(s) to login. Whenever Windows XP is installed on a system, it creates a default account called "Administrator" and by default this account is not password protected. Therefore, if you bought a brand name computer (such as Dell, HP, Compaq or Sony)or you have installed Windows XP yourself. You should be able to login to the computer through theunprotected Administrator account.

You can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to your account. To do this, try Method 1.

Method 1: Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch on until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Click through several self-explanatory screens until your reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.

Note that this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and 640x480 resolution because the primary graphics will have been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA adapter. You will not be able to change this mode even in Display options, while Windows is running in Safe Mode.

Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be no password for this account.
Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can change any of the other passwords for user on the machine. Make any changes you want.
Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys (e.g. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup normally.

Try log in as Administrator account from Safe Mode. Reboot, after the first screen bios information, press F8 button repeatedly before the Windows logo come out, after that select Safe Mode At the Top one, after the boot, log in administrator account. Username: Administrator Password: -just leave it blank- When you logged in, go Control Panel, then User Control/User Account, then select the account which you forget the password, now remove the password.(or you can change it) Reboot your system.

Cant become administrator


Go to Control Panel and User Accounts. See if it will let you change the type of account you have to administrator or if you can creat an new administrator account. If that doesn't work log off and try logging on as Admin or admin (try both) and leave the password window blank. See if you can log in under admin and then change your current user account to administrator. You also don't have to run the ISP software to get on the net. You can change the settings to your network adapters manually without software. Problem here is you might have to be an administrator account to do that also.

I have deleted my User account as administrator


Boot into safe mode (F8 on startup) and let windows load, look under Users and you'll find your account has magically reappeared. Change the Sellers account back to an administrator and then reboot. Your account will then be visable again on normal boot up.
