All of my windows XP user accounts were deleted except for one limited account. The laptop only stays on a couple minutes at the time. Video and audio is great when I can keep it on. Also have new battery....


Access the Administrator's account and create another account or do the necessary changes, like virus scanning, driver updating, etc..etc.. To access the Administrator's account in Windows xp, once the system boots upto the windows logon screen (where you are going to type in your password), press Ctrl+Alt+Del twice, the classing logon box will pop up, there type in "Administrator" and username and leave the password blank and press Enter. (If you had changed the administrator's password, use that one)

If you need further help, let me know with specific details.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Rid admin. user&password update comp2run faster


There are two solutions to your problem. First reinstall the operating system thus wiping out the previous user accounts and thus the administrator password.

If you would like there is a way to break the administrator's password. You need to crack your administrator password hashes.

Contact me if you would like some help regarding above.

I have a school laptop and i want to unblock the password


Hi, man. Don’t worry, there are many people forget their admin password or lost it, and there is a popular solution for those who have been locked out by computer. For this solution, what you need is a second computer that can connect to Internet and then freely download Windows Password Recovery 6.0 With it, you can create a reset CD which can be used to reset Windows admin password without erasing anything.

I can't change my settings for updates. It tells


You would have to log into your computer under administrator. You may need a password. If you are not the administrator or do not have the password you can not change settings on the computer. You can try going to the control panel and clicking on users to see user information.

Who is my computer's "Administrator"? How can I change it?


Hi Kaites33,
To create a Administrator account on your MacBook, follow the instructions below, however, please note that this will only work if "Open Firmware Password Protection" has NOT been enabled. Anyhow, it's worth a try.
1. Shutdown your MacBook. 2. Press the power button to start the computer. 3. Immediately press and hold the Command (Apple) Key and the "s" key, until you see white text appear on a black screen. 4. At the prompt, type the following commands, hitting "Return" after each.
  • mount -uw /
  • rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
  • reboot
  • --------------- Once your computer reboots, it will show the "Welcome to OS X" video, and guide you through the process of creating a new Admin User.
    Your current Standard User account will not be changed/harmed.
    During the creation of the new Admin account, remember to: a) select "DO NOT TRANSFER MY DATA". b) Keep the SAME computer name. c) Choose a DIFFERENT Username (Otherwise it will overwrite your old account)
    Once you have finished, you will have two accounts, and will be able to log in to either.
    Optionally, when you are logged in with the new Admin Account, you could change your existing account to an admin account, then log out, log in to the old account (which is now an admin account too) and then delete the new admin account.
    Hope this helps, and let me know if there is anything you do not understand.
    Regards,
    Cybernanga

    Lost administrator login name and password


    Well, if this is your computer you purchased, ie: HP, Compaq, Gateway, etc. then more than likely the password is simple.... nothing. Not the word nothing, but a blank entry. Try that. IF not, then you could always press F8 while the computer powers on and then you can try to start the computer up into Safe Mode. and at the login screen there it may work. With the user name 'Administrator' and a blank password. If not, there are ways to remove Windows passwords.
