Hi
Sorry to be negative but the guest account cannot change the computer settings, only someone with administrator rights and an administrator account username and password can make such a change.
Cheers

I do not know who or what an administrator is how to contact them


That happens when you are running a user account that is not the administrator account. In many ways this is smart because trojans and viruses have the same trouble installing. In schools or office buildings where they want to control who installs what on the computers it makes less problems for an administrator to fix. In your case switch users and log into your administrator account in control panel see if you can give your usual user account administrator privileges, shut down administrator account and log into your usual account and see if it now has administrator privileges in the control panel/user accounts. If not then install software while logged in the administrator account but install for all users from now on. Or you can only use the administrator account and set it up the way you like it (like your regular user account)

I cannot reboot my acer computer because the admin. password was changed, and I do not have the Vista disk either.


Could you please let me know do you have administrator password, by rebooting the computer in safe mode (F8 Key at logo appear). If yes then revert quickly.. so that we can figure it out....

OR

Try This..

Warning If you use an administrator account to reset the password, you will permanently lose access to any e‑mail messages or encrypted files that are on that account.
Note These steps cannot be completed on Windows Vista Starter, Windows Vista Home Basic, and Windows Vista Home Premium.
  1. Log on to the administrator account that you will use to reset the forgotten password.
  2. Open Local Users and Groups by clicking the Start button , typing lusrmgr.msc into the Search box, and then pressing ENTER. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Double-click Local Users and Groups, and then click Users.
  4. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click Set Password.
  5. Type and confirm the new password.

Make it work with VISTA home premium


What version of Windows are you using it on at present, or have you been in the
past? If XP then get the latest versions from:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?
os=228&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=59968&dlc=en

There's a main download and an update.

If you have any HP software that you have tried uninstall it using Remove
Programs and then disconnect the USB cable from the PC end and install the XP
software as follows:

Locate the downloaded file ps804en.exe 1/1 (70.62M) on your computer, Right
Mouse Click on it and select Properties / Compatibility TAB.

On that TAB, check Use Compatibility mode and set it to XP with SP2 and also
check lower down the [x] Run as Administrator and OK your way out.

Do not connect the device until the installation procedure tells you to or
until you get to Finish.

Then repeat the procedure on the downloaded update file ps803mu.exe 1/1
(373.11k) although you can leave the USB cable connected unless it tells you
otherwise.

Troubleshooting motorola pc suite in Vista?


There are 2 solutions to your problem.

First Solution:
This error message is due to the user account access control setting in Vista. To prevent this error from displaying go to the control panel, User settings and then disable the User Account Control settings.

Second Solution:
This alternative that doesn't require disabling User Account Control security in Vista: run MPT as administrator (either by right clicking on the MPT desktop icon and choosing "Run as administrator" or checking the "Run this program as an administrator" box in the Privilege Level section of the Compatibility tab of the MPT properties dialog - right click on the MPT desktop icon, choose "properties" then click the Compatibility tab).

Although you'll get an "An unidentified program wants access to your computer" dialog each time you run MPT, the application should work correctly.

This solution would avoid having to weigh the potential security compromise associated with disabling User Account Control.
