If you have the system recovery disk that came with that pc, you should be able to completely reformat the entire drive, which would wipe all of the data and start fresh. Also, you can try following these instruction for lost Windows password:

When i try to play blitzkrieg 2, i cant play game as i get message saying error code 577 also that i need administrator privileges


error 577 is a registry error. The fix is easy, download and install PC Health Advisor. This free microsoft tool will fix registry errors. Do this first.

For the Administrator problem, you can right click on the shortcut and choose "run as administrator" and you should be able to play the game.

Why after I install the game it says I cant play because I do not have "adminitrative privlages"?


If you have the game on your desktop, just right click the game and press "run as administrator". Then it will ask you if you let it have acces (might ask your password), you press OK, and you'll run it with the administrative privilages you need.

Game.exe not working


Whats your PC status like?

Most games are CPU and resource demanding.

Update your directX. you can get the latest updates at microsofts website or go through google and type directx runtime. Download the redistributable file. it better.

Secondly go back to the website where you got the game for the installation manual and requirements. if your systems meets all the requirement and the problem still persists then uninstall it and follow this procedure:

right click the installation file e.g game.exe, click run as administrator. follow the installation instructions.

after installation right click the game program and also click run as administrator.

On the game settings, enable Hardware accelerators and use directx if these options are enabled in the game settings
