Signing in to skype requires changing some data on your computer (minor skype files on preferences, remembering your log-in, etc.) Depending on the version of windows, you will not be able to sign in

How can i add guest icon to my startup screen


If your computer is not part of a domain. First check if the Guest account is turned on. You will need to be an Administrator. The guest account option is in the User Account control panel. Click Start > Control Panel (in the right hand column). Select the link for User Accounts. Click on the Guest account to turn on the option.

Then you should be able to see an option for switching to the Guest account when you log out of your current account or get to the select user screen when you turn on/restart the computer. (The default is to log in the most recent user.)

If your XP Pro computer is part of a domain, you need to use the Local Users and Groups section of Computer Management. That's in the Control Panel under Performance and Maintenance > System Tools. Right click on an account and select Properties to enable or disable the account.

I hope this helps.

Within the three types of Windows user accounts, only the administrator account allows you to change another accounts' password. So if you want to <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/reset-windows-password.html">reset Windows password</a> of another accounts, you need to change your account type to administrator firstly. Moreover, if you need to give a user more access to perform tasks like installing software or other system changes, you also need to change your account type.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Steps to Change Windows User Account Type</span><br /><br />1. Log on your Windows machine with an administrator account.<br /><br />2. Click "Start" - "Control Panel" - "User Accounts and Family Safety" - "User Accounts".<br /><br />3. Click "Manage another account".<br /><br />4. Click on the user account that you would like to change its type.<br /><br />5. On the following window, click "Change the account type" from on the left pane.<br /><br />6. Select Administrator and click "Change Account" Type to finish your operation.<br /><br />Since the standard user account turn to an administrator one, you can reset Windows password of another accounts or do other operations without limitation through control panel.<br /><br />You can change standard user to administrator only when you can log on your computer with an available administrator account. If you forgot Windows password of all administrator accounts, you'll need to reset Windows administrator password even you can access your computer with a standard user or guest account.<br /><br />Software Windows Login Recovery allows you to create a password reset disk with blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive. With the disk you can reset Windows password to be empty in few minutes. With it, you'll never be worried when you forgot Windows password. All you need to do is just three steps.<br /><br />1.

Reset Windows password to be empty.<br /><br />Now you can log on to your computer without passwords. By the way, you can reset any account's password with this software. <br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Something about Windows User Accounts</span><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Administrator:</span> A administrator account is intended for someone who can make system wide changes to the computer, install software, and access all non-private files on the computer. Only with administrator rights you can full access to other user accounts on the computer, change other their names, passwords, and types.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Standard user:</span> The standard user account can help protect your computer by preventing users from making changes that affect everyone who uses the computer. When you log on to Windows with a standard user account, you can do anything that you can do with an administrator account. But if you want to install software or hardware, reset Windows password of another accounts, etc. the computer might ask you to provide a password of an administrator account.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Guest:</span> A Guest account allows people to use your computer without having rights to access to any of your personal files. This can be useful if you want to quickly allow someone to use your computer. A person that log on computer with guest account cannot install software or hardware, change system settings, or create a password.

HOW DO I REMOVE THE GUEST ADMINISTRATOR WITHOUT BEING AN ADMINISTRATOR ON MY COMPUTER SO I CAN DOWNLOAD THINGS ON MY COMPUTER


You question is not that specific so i can't give you the specific answer, there're several ways to configure this settings, but it depends on the Operating system you are using. If you are using windows Xp, log off from the desktop and press Ctrl+Alt+Del simultaneously on the login screen (sometimes you'll need to press several times), a small logon window will pop up, type administrator on the username box and if a password was set with the administrator, key in the password, or if there's none, just press enter after typing the "administrator". After you are logged in with the administrator account, go to control panel - user account - create new - and create an account (any username that you want to give) with the administrator privilege (rights) {you should select Computer Administrator}. Again log off and login using the new username and password (if you've set a password). Now with that account, you can do anything with your computer. If it's not Xp then the problem is difficult being without the administrator's rights. If you have another account with administrator's rights, then you can disable the Guest account. Good luck Thanks for using FixYa.

My administrator account is corrupt and i can not log into it, but luckily i have the guest account turned on but with this account i can not create a new account like an administrator one. so how do i...


Without using 3rd party pay-for tools, I would recommend locating the Windows CD that came with the machine. I would then boot to the CD, and use the Recovery Console option. When you get into the recovery console, you should be able to log in using the administrator password only. This doesn't load the Administrator profile, it just uses the password for permissions reasons. I would then navigate to the Documents and Settings folder (assuming this is XP) and rename the Administrator profile folder to something else. Once you rename this folder, restart the computer, log in as Administrator again, and Windows will create a new profile for the Administrator, and leave your old one alone. Once you're logged in, you can browse to the old profile and get your files and pictures back.
