WindowsXPhomeedition.Taskmanager unaccesable in admin account too

Hi, I'm using Windows XP home edition on a P3 compaq presario. I'm unable to use Takmanager. In any way brought up, its grayed out. also i cant find the "folder options" folder anymore, nor in the explorer or control panel. this makes managing of hidden files really comlicated cause have to do it now without the option of "show hidden files".
Thinking it might be a administration problem arising from user accounts althugh it did show all of them to be administrators. Still i deleted all except the one windows wont let me do so making the only user account on Windows xp the one i'm using as administrator by default(correct me if i'm wrong anywhere above or would like to know more info, still whatever u think is the fault ,send it through) Pls can someone help me out with this prob of mine.. Thank You

Hi,
if the keyboard is working in any other user account . The user account has gone corrupt. You can recreate a new admin account. But before you do that back up all the my documents folder.

1. Restart the computer and press the F8 key a couple of times before windows starts
2. Select safe mode and press enter
3. Select the admin account and log in
4. Click on Yes to continue to work in safe mode

Unable to update or sychronize with time.windows.com


you need admin\administrator rights to change anything on vista. it is suppose to be more secured than Windows XP.
administrator /user is power user rights, which don't have rights to change system setting, but you do have rights to install certain program.
login into the machine as administrator and provide the corect password.

Forgot my log in password for my Compaq Presario CQ50-217NR Notebook PC. Is there anyway I can unlock it without the password? Please help have a dead line i have to meet


This is your best bet. Go to this website. http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/ . On this website, you need to download the offline NT password & registry editor. IT will be an ISO disk image. you will need to burn this to a disk.. I suggest using a free program called imageburn. You need to put it in your computer when you restart it, and it should load. All the tutorials and walkthroughs can be found on that link above. Good Luck!

Limited User access will not open files in software program


boot into safe mode on xp. when you start the computer and the bios screen comes up start tapping the F8 key. it should take you to the boot selection screen. press your arrow keys to get to the selection "Windows Safe Mode" and press enter. when xp loads the login screen, there should be an admin account now. use that account to set users access to admin rights.
if you dont want that user to have admin rights but still start software that requires admin rights, try this. right-click on the program. go to run as... and choose administrator.

please let me know if this helped you :)
