For some reason I have lost admin rights on my computer. Not sure what happened, but when I boot up I get some error "mustafx". Have no idea what that is...and cannot add or remove programs or anything like that. Any help would be greatly appreciated
Is it your computer...lol. None of my bussiness but if I were you try to save all of the files that you can...the ones you cant live without...and restart your computer with your disk. Format your hard drive and install windows.
Otherwise the default password is admin admin. username and password. :P

Here is a link for upgrading to Win 7: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/t/19356108.aspx If you can't boot form the CD/DVD you have a problem with your CD/DVD drive. If you can enter the BOIS (setup menu) then your computer is working, just waiting for a device to boot from.
Trying using a boot disk to see if your data is still there. I've seen this happen before and the virus had infected several of the files required for the computer to boot. When the virus scanner cleaned the files and the computer rebooted, the system files were gone. What ever you do, do not reformat the hard drive or use a system restore disk until you are sure that you have no data that is recoverable on the drive.
Hope this help you...This is in relation to what your error code means, you'll need to check against the list.

The problem is that you don't have all of the Dell-specific drivers for the OS. You can download them here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_P4_9100&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
If you enter your Service Tag, it will display the drivers for only the devices you have installed. Also note that there are other applications (such as Sonic for burnind optical discs) that are also available from this page.
log on through your ID

Ok, what I am going to do is show you how to bypass or (hack) a password protected windows xp computer. first, restart your computer>press F8 before it boots up, a menu will come up>select safe mode>restart in safe mode>the admin account comes up> click on it and click yes when the small menu comes up> the computer should boot to the desktop now>select start>control panel>select user accounts>select change account and follow the prompts to creating a new account (make sure that the administrator radio button is selected) put in your new password, etc> restart your computer. You should now have administrator privileges on that system. Let me know if you have any further problems. :-)
