Thank you

Do i have an acount

Click start Control Panel.

Select "User Accounts and Family Safety," then "User Accounts."

Click "Turn User Account Control on or off."

Remove the check mark next to "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer."

Click "OK."

Set All Accounts to Administrator

Still in the UAC section of Control Panel, select "Manage another account," and click on a user account.

Click on "Change the account type." When working with multiple accounts, some changes can only be made if you and the account holder are both logged in with "Administrator" accounts so you need to change all user accounts to "Administrator."

When you are done making changes, you can change them back to "Standard," but always leave at least one "Administrator" account.

Select the "Administrator" radio button.

Click "Change Account Type" at the bottom right.

Repeat this procedure to change each user account to "Administrator." When all user accounts have been changed, close the Control Panel.

Create a Full Administrator Account

Click "Start" (the Windows Vista icon in the lower left of your screen). In the Search box, type "cmd". Right-click on "cmd," and select "Run as Administrator." An elevated command prompt window will appear.

At the command prompt, type "net user administrator /active:yes", and press "Enter."

Choose a password and assign it to the "Administrator" account, by typing "net user administrator 'password'", where 'password' is your selected password. For instance, if your password is "abc," type "net user administrator abc". Press "Enter."

Type "exit" and press "Enter."

Log off. When you log back into your "Administrator" account, you will have full rights.

hope this helps

New laptop, windows 7 loaded. when trying to access anything this message appears User account control. Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer yes or no


It seem Windows 7 is fairly new for you. The User Account Control or UAC started with Vista as it is a security feature to make user aware on what is coming in and going out from your computer to minimize the risks of many things such as virus infection. You may want to disable it. Here's how.

Disable or Turn Off UAC (User Account Control) in Control Panel
  1. To user Control Panel to disable UAC in Windows 7, there are several methods to access the User Account Control settings page:
    1. Go to Start Menu -> Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family Safety -> User Account.
    2. Go to Start Menu -> Control Panel -> System and Security -> Action Center.
    3. Click or right click on Flag icon in notification area (system tray), and then Open Action Center.
    4. Type "MsConfig" in Start Search to start System Configuration, then go to Tools tab, select Change UAC Settings, then click on Launch button.
  2. Click on User Account Control settings link. win7-uac.jpg
  3. Slide the slider bar to the lowest value (towards Never Notify), with description showing Never notify me. windows-7-disable-uac.jpg
  4. Click OK to make the change effective.
  5. Restart the computer to turn off User Access Control.
I hope this works for you. Goodluck!

I am in standard user on my laptop and want to switch to administrator user and my Toshiba laptop wont let me switch

What is the Operating System installed on your Laptop? For windows, try this:

Open the command prompt, or simply start, type in "cmd" [without quotes], press enter and type in "Net user /active:yes" [without quotes and one space after user] again press enter and confirm if any message pops up. This is enable the administrator's account.

You can also manually enable it from the Computer Management, right-click the My Computer, select "Manage", click "Local users and Groups", then again open "Users", double-click the "Administrator" and enable it.

If you need further help, let me know with more details.

Good luck.

L350-170 Logon Failure

Sounds like profile corruption or virus problem. Try restarting the machine and tapping f8 until menu appears. Go into safe mode then logon as administrator. If you can get into windows, go to control panel then user accounts. Create new user account then restart machine. Log on using new user account and copy all personal files/folders to new user account.

Hi When the laptop boots and reaches the logon screen, log in as administrator. If administrator does not show in the list of users, press ctrl+alt+del two times. The log on screen will appear. Log in as administrator, blank password and make sure it's logging in to the laptop and not on a domain. Then you can create a new user, Control Panel, Users, Create user. Make sure that this user has admistrative rights. Restart the computer and this new user will show in list of users to log on. Please let me know if you have any problems doing this.
