You must log on as Administrator, then go to control panel and select Users, click on the user that you want to change and change the account type to administrator.

There must be an account on the PC with admin rights?? That user needs to log on and change your account to full instead of limited.

First, you have to log in as the administrator. Then you can go under control panel. There, you should find a User Accounts area. You can create an account with limited rights from there. Make sure that if your employee knows your admin password, you change it.

It is a simple matter to add an administrator account to your computer provided you are already logged in as an administrator. If you are logged in as an account created as "limited",as many guest accounts are, you do not have the authority to create an administrator account.Provided you are already an administrator and only want to add a new account follow these steps. From the start button, go to control panel, then user accounts. Click on add account, create a name, click on administrator and just follow the prompts.

If all access was removed from the system drive, the user can't login.

To limit a user in Windows XP, change their account to "Limited User". If there are specific folders you don't want them to access, you can right click on the folder, go to Sharing/Security and set the appropriate limitations on individual folders and their subfolders.

Desktop colour depth change on startup


Your colour issue may be down to incorrectly configured graphics settings, make sure in properties the colour is set to Highest (32-bit). If that fails, you can use a new user account, drag your files over on the new account and re-do your settings and delete your old user account. As you have changed quite a lot of components in your computer, the only likely problem left is either a dodgy power supply unit or an overheating issue. If a power supply detects it has a fault, it will shut itself off. However, go to your BIOS and search through menus for temperature information (you can usually find it in the power section of the BIOS) and check if the temperature is abnormal. Anything like 75 celcius and above can cause the computer to shut itself down as a safety feature. On most motherboards, you can raise this limit so it shuts down at 80 celcius or 90 celcius, or not at all. 80 is the absolute highest I'd ever set a computer at, because the higher the temperature at that sort of level, the lower life expectancy your components will have. You may also have a faulty CPU as "compileing and writing DVD's" is very CPU intensive and can be causing the computer to die. Make sure your CPU is NOT OVERCLOCKED. If it is, take the overclock off.
