How do i change admin.


Computer administrators have access to make certain changes on a computer that other users may not have.

Administrators have full freedom to install and uninstall programs, move files around and make changes to the Windows registry.

There are actually three ways that one may become the administrator on their computer; during the initial setup, change the settings in the Control Panel or by having the current administrator change the permissions on the account.

Set up an account during the initial setup of Windows on the computer.

During the setup wizard, you will be asked to set up an administrator account.
Choose the account name, user icon and password to set up the administrator account.

Step 1.
Change your account permissions if there isn't an administrator account currently setup.
During some installations Windows users were allowed to install the program without setting up an administrator account.

Click on "Start" then "Control Panel" to open the Control Panel.

Click on "Users and Accounts" or "Users Accounts and Family Safety".
Click on "User Accounts."

Click on "Add or remove user accounts" then "create a new account".

Assign the new account administrative privileges, a user name and password.
Click "OK" and close all windows. Log in under the new Administrator account.

Have the current administrator change your account privileges from "User" to "Administrator". She can do this by following the same steps described in Step 1.

Instead of creating a new account, she must click on your current account and then apply the new permissions.

If you do not currently have an account on the computer, she will need to create you one.

I forgot my adminastor password


Elevate a secondary account outside of the admin account to admin status, then login as it and change your admin password. If you don't have a secondary user account, you can create one (and elevate it to admin status) by running the following from the command line:

net user "useraccount" "password" /add
net localgroup administrators "your pc's name"\"useraccount" /add

Of course, remove the quotations and insert the user account name, your pc's name, and the password where those words show up. That should allow you to get into Windows with admin privelages and change the administrator password. I do it through the "manage" function by right clicking on My Computer. Then go to Local Users and Groups, fo to the users folder, right click on your administrator account and hit "Set password". Hope this helps!

GO TO START PROGRAMS AND CLICK ON CONTROL PANEL. WHEN IT COMES UP CLICK ON THE ICON THAT SAYS ADMINISTRATORS. IF YOU WERE ON AS AN ADMINISTRATOR TOO, THEN YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR PW OR ADD SOMEONE ELSE TOO. BUT IF YOU WERE NOT THE ORIGNAL ADMINISTRATOR THEN YOU HAVE TO HAVE THAT PERSON DO IT AND ADD YOU ON. GOOD LUCK!

I have a Compaq Presarion 1425. I am trying to remove the administrator block so that my sister who is in college can download things from her school. A message about administration comes up when she is...


If running Vista: Try the following
Open up Control Panel, and type in user account into the search box. You'll see the link for "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off". Click it. Uncheck the box, and reboot your computer. You should be done with administrator prompts! Now, Microsoft highly recommends that you do not do this. A little red X shield icon plants itself in your taskbar, telling you about the security risk. In Control Panel, go to the Security Center. On the left hand side, click the "Change the way Security Center alerts me" and choose "Don't notify me and don't display the icon (not recommended)"

Just by a wild chance the "block" isn't coming from your sisters colleges web site?

Forgot windows acount access password; need to reset it?


Hi osio123 - if you're running XP here is how you do it. If you're running Vista let me know.

Log in to any account that has Administrator access.
Then go to User Accounts in Control Panel.
Select the user and change the password.

For Windows XP Pro:
At the log-in screen, press Ctrl/Alt/Del twice quickly
Type "Administrator" and leave password blank.

For Windows XP Home:
Reboot, tapping F8 each second.
Select Safe Mode at the menu.
Select Administrator at login, leave password blank.
Most Administrator accounts don't have passwords.

Then go to User Accounts in Control Panel.
Select the user and change the password.

If this gets you in, go to the list on the left side, and after you change your password create a password recovery disk.

If this fixes your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. IF NOT, DON'T RATE YET. Add a comment and let me know exactly what happened when you tried it. I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

System Administrator


As for logging in as Administrator try leaving the password area blank and that should get you in. As for the Control Panel Icon, if it's not showing up in your start menu you can open it's properties and through the customization function you can add it again.
