Creating a admin


Computer administrators have access to make certain changes on a computer that other users may not have. Administrators have full freedom to install and uninstall programs, move files around and make changes to the Windows registry. There are actually three ways that one may become the administrator on their computer; during the initial setup, change the settings in the Control Panel or by having the current administrator change the permissions on the account.

Set up an account during the initial setup of Windows on the computer. During the setup wizard, you will be asked to set up an administrator account. Choose the account name, user icon and password to set up the administrator account. Step 2.Change your account permissions if there isn't an administrator account currently setup. During some installations Windows users were allowed to install the program without setting up an administrator account. Click on "Start" then "Control Panel" to open the Control Panel. Click on "Users and Accounts" or "Users Accounts and Family Safety". Click on "User Accounts." Click on "Add or remove user accounts" then "create a new account". Assign the new account administrative privileges, a user name and password. Click "OK" and close all windows. Log in under the new Administrator account. Have the current administrator change your account privileges from "User" to "Administrator". She can do this by following the same steps described in Step 2. Instead of creating a new account, she must click on your current account and then apply the new permissions. If you do not currently have an account on the computer, she will need to create you one.

Fatal error 06


This behavior can occur if an earlier version of McAfee's VirusScan (anti- virus software) or Norton AntiVirus is being loaded from the Autoexec.bat file.

Warning This workaround may make your computer or your network more vulnerable to attack by malicious users or by malicious software such as viruses. We do not recommend this workaround but are providing this information so that you can implement this workaround at your own discretion. Use this workaround at your own risk.
To resolve this issue, disable McAfee VirusScan or Norton AntiVirus. To do so, follow these steps:
  1. Restart your computer, press and hold down the CTRL key until the Windows 98 Startup menu appears, and then choose Command Prompt Only.
  2. At the command prompt, type edit c:\autoexec.bat, and then press ENTER.
  3. Type rem, and then a space at the beginning of the line that contains Vshield.exe.

    If you are using Norton AntiVirus, type rem and then a space at the beginning of the line added by Norton AntiVirus.
  4. Save and then close the Autoexec.bat file.
  5. Restart your computer. Setup should continue.

On my dell d600... my dr-rw is not working at all!!! Please help me??


First, go to control panel under windows xp or other, find device manager, uninstall current driver. Close window, reboot.
Windows will try to install a compatible driver and try the drive again.
If this doesn't work, try manually installing a reliable dvd or cdrom drive and test the port that this drive hooks into. If a known reliable drive does not work on this computer, then there is port damage (may be caused by a hidden virus or malicious software)
My relative has a similar problem and I can no longer play steady dvd movies on his d610 anymore.
