Log in to safe mode -
Start the Pc and press either F5 or F8, log on as Administrator - most don't have passwords, and set it up in user accounts that way.

How to install vlc media player?

You can download it from the actual website if you already haven't. Once that's done you just have to follow the prompts. If you don't have installation privileges from the administrator, then you unfortunately can't install it unless you ask them to.

About themes

Step 1: Download Windows Vista UxTheme patch.
How to install
1. Login as a user with Administrative privileges -or- have Administrative credentials already.
2. Navigate to %systemroot%\System32
3. Right-click uxtheme.dll and click properties.
4. Take ownership of the file and close dialogs.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for themeui.dll and shsvcs.dll
6. Right-click uxtheme.dll and click properties.
7. Give yourself (or group) Full Control permissions and close dialogs.
8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 for themeui.dll and shsvcs.dll.
9. Rename uxtheme.dll to uxtheme.old.
10. Rename themeui.dll to themeui.old.
11. Rename shsvcs.dll to shsvcs.old.
12. Copy patched files into %systemroot%\System32
13. Reboot the computer.
Step 1b: If you find the above too intimidating, download VistaGlazz and just run it, it automates the whole patching process so you don’t have to worry about it.
Step 2: Download a Windows Vista Theme and copy the theme to Windows/Resources/Themes folder.
Step 3: Right click on desktop and click on Personalize. From the page that pops up, click on Theme and choose your newly installed theme!

Can not install CD for my Mp3 player

You are probably signed on as a "guest" - every computer running windows XP or higher (Vista included) considers every user as a "guest" or an "administrator". Restart your computer, and sign in as an administrator. I don't know how computer saavy you are, but my real name is "Cor-y K-o-t-g-n" (I left out letters on purpose to protect my identity), so the login account that I created for myself when I upgraded to Windows XP was named Cor-y K-e-t-g-n- I also assigned it as an administrator account. My firends/family that use the computer are "guests" - if they log in to their particular names, they can use the computer, but they cannot install new software. I hope this helps a little.

Boot the computer in safe mode and create another account with administrator privileges. Then restart normally and either use the new account, or re-set the original administrator account password.
