try this, it may help
  • Go ahead and create a new user account, and make sure you give it a name like MAIN or ADMIN for administrative purposes.
  • Make the other account the administrator by going to: START, CONTROL PANEL, USER ACCOUNTS AND FAMILY SAFETY, USER ACCOUNTS. Then select to make it the administrator
  • Log off your user account, and go to the new administrator account, then delete the old account. After that you create another user name with the same name as the one you deleted so as to get a fresh start.
  • Install whatever programs were not allowed to be installed on the old administrator account because of error messages and other flaws that kept repeating themselves on the old user account. Voila! You have now bypassed the errors that keep you from having a Laptop with no errors on your software programs.

Hi i need to restore my Phillips iqor computer to factory settings as i am getting rid if it and don't want to leave my personal information on it

You don't have to go thru all that trouble to get rid of your personal information. First just create a new user account with administrative rights that the person who is getting your computer will use. After you create the new user account reboot the computer and log on with the new account you created. Then Delete your old user account. It will delete all your documents, music, pictures, videos.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts then create the new user account with Administrative Rights (not limited).

Reboot and and log on with the user account you just created.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Account and select the account you want to delete and Delete it. When asked about files to save, you want to delete everything associated with the account you are deleting.

If you have more than one user account you want to delete, do the same thing for it.

The user on my mini mac has not allowed me to use or alter password, so I've deleted but my memory is taken up by this user although I can't access the files. can't find my discs to reinstall. please help!

You can create a new administrator user on the machine, and delete the old user from the machine, which will get rid of all the files associated with that old user. You'd do this from System Preferences, from the Accounts pane. You'd click the + icon in the bottom left to add a new user, and make sure "Allow this user to administer this computer" is checked. If you are not able to unlock this control panel (i.e. if the lock icon in the bottom left is locked) then you may be out of luck.
Deleting an old user (and all associated files) is just a matter of highlighting that user and clicking the minus icon in the Accounts pane.

That account will say password protected. select delete user account and click on the old users account . Windows will say it will delete the account and all files of the user. if it asks select ok and be patient . It will be a few minutes as windows deletes the account. Do a final reboot and the old account and password should be gone.
