Question about Computers & Internet
Im assuming your account doesn't have administrator rights and that your being asked to supply an account with Administrator credentials yes?
if so ask the person who usually installs software on your pc if they could install it for you , otherwise there is no other way unless you can get them to also create you an administrator account , then you would have no problems installing new things on the PC.
When you are logging onto your own account under Windows XP it sounds like you have been supplied with a "Limited Account" meaning you can't do things like install new software to the PC , you can't create new accounts when using a limited account so there is no way you could give your self a "Administrator Account".
The only other solution that i have for you is when you get to the logon screen press alt + ctrl + delete it shold hopefully bring up the administrator account , for the password try it blank or even try admin or administrator or password , but if there is a password on there it's probably because they dont want you to gain that sort of access.
