How do i change 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 1.
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 1.

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.

How can remove the admin password on my Dell D600 laptop


f you can already login to this computer and you have administrator's rights, then you do not need the administrator's password. You can go to the Control Panel - User Accounts to set up other Users or change the password on the various Users as well as the administrator.
If you need the administrator's password to set up a new user then there is a way to remove the administrator password.
You need to download Hiren's utilities and make a boot CD with this utility. You most likely need to do this from another computer.
For details on how to remove the administrator password please click on this link :-
