Try booting into safe mode and log in as Administrator. From there you can go to Control Panel and edit any user account you have on computer.

Lost administration rights


That sounds nasty. Is it your computer? If you still have Admin rights I would boot up into Safe Mode and run as many anti-virus and anti-malware progs as you can.

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.

you're victim of some kind of mailware that restrict administrative rights it is certainly the cause of your email problem too.
Download DIALAFIX
run it and go to policies, then scan, normally a line should appear, select remove, reboot, retry.
it should then allow you to access and perhaps your mail problems will be solved already..

My 7 yr. old son, somehow, turned my screen black, with white print. It's very ******* the eyes. I've gone into easy access and nothing is checked off, but the black screen remains,,,,HELp!!!!!


I have a feeling he turned on high contrast mode (supposedly it's meant to make reading the screen easier for people who are disabled, I think it just hurts everyone's eyes). To change that, right click on your desktop and go to appearance and click on the top pulldown menu and select windows xp style. Hopefully that will fix it.

My pc is lock from parental control hwo can i unlock it i forgot my pasword


The following instructions applly only for Internet Explorer's content They include instuctions for editing the computer's registry. MAKE SURE YOU BACKUP THE REGISTRY AND/OR CREATE A RESTORE POINT PRIOR TO EDITING THE REGISTRY. Please be sure to following the instructions carefully as tinkering with the registry without knowing what you're doing can serious screw up your OS and software!

The following steps will remove any password set in the Internet Explorer Content Advisor and allow you to reset the program to its original state.
1) Click on Start and choose Run

2) Type in RegEdit and select OK.

3) Now click on the little plus sign to the left of H_KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

4) Continue to drill down, always clicking on the plus sign at the left of the named key, through Software, Microsoft, Windows, Current Version and Policies.

5) Now click on the Ratings folder.

6) In the right pane of the RegEdit window, you'll see an icon called Key. Click on it and press Delete.

7) Next, choose Registry and then Exit to exit RegEdit. You've just deleted your original Content Advisor password.

8) Restart the computer and run Internet Explorer again.

9) Choose View and then Internet Options (or Options for version 3.x). For IE 5 or greater, Click on Tools, Internet Options.

10) Click on the Content tab and click on Disable. When asked for a password, don't enter anything; just click on OK. This will disable Content Advisor because there's no longer a password.

If you are a child trying to bypass parental control DO NOT attempt this as you will most likely cause damage to the registry!
