Question about Apple iTunes

1 Answer

I have a laptop I use with my family. I am the computer administrator and all of my family members sign on with different user IDs and passwords. Just yesterday, I synced my iphone and updated itunes. I was prompted to restart my laptop to apply the updates so I did this. As soon as I could sign back on, I tried to do so but could not get signed on!! When I try to sign on, it is as though my password has been changed. My other family members can signon with their user ID and password but I, as Administrator, cannot. Using my wife signon, I have been able to find the checkpoint before the installation but when I restored I could still not signon. HELP!

Sounds like your profile has become corrupt. You may have to create a new one for yourself and then delete the old one.

What is the administrator code


To install new software (including games) you must be a system administrator. If you are not a system administrator it will prompt you to login with an administrator account. A user who is considered an system administrator must login. There is an default admin account called "Administrator" and the default password is blank. However it is usually disabled. This means you must have a different user of the computer sign in .

Forgot my log on password how can i reset password


I have included instructions for windows XP, however, no matter what operating system you have installed on your notebook, this solution may work. When windows is installed, there is an adminstrator account installed on the computer by default. Most often, the password is left blank.

So, if you restart your computer, hit control-Alt-Deletecan when the user account page appears and type in Administrator as the user and leave the password blank, you may be able to sign onto your computer to reset your user password. Step by step instructions are listed below. If you cannot access your computer using the administrator account, you many have to use the restore partition on your computer to do a restore of windows. This will bring windows back to the original configuration as it was when the computer was delivered to you. You should be able to chose a "Non destructive" restore so that your hard drive is not formatted and your documents will not be erased.

If you need further instruction on using the restore utility on your Pavilion notebook, let me know.

Ok im the system admin on my computer but it keeps telling me that im not system admin


It's a bit of a read

Passwords add a level of security to your computer. When sharing a computer with others, your customized settings, computer programs, and system resources are more secure when you assign a password to your logon name or user account name. The steps to perform this task differ depending on whether your computer is a member of a network domain or is part of a workgroup (or is a stand-alone computer). My computer is on a domain You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might also prevent you from completing this procedure. Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password. My computer is not on a domain If no password has been assigned to the user's account, a password will need to be created before it can be changed. For information about creating a password, click Related Topics. The steps to perform this task differ depending on the type of user account you have. If you have a computer administrator account Open User Accounts in Control Panel. Click your account name. Click Change my password. In Type your current password, type your current password. In Type a new password and Type the new password again to confirm, type your new password. You can also enter descriptive or meaningful text in Type a word or phrase to use as a password hint to help you remember your password. Click Change Password. If you have a limited account Open User Accounts in Control Panel. Click Change my password. In Type your current password, type your current password. In Type a new password and Type the new password again to confirm, type the new password. You can also enter descriptive or meaningful text in Type a word or phrase to use as a password hint to help you remember your password. Click Change Password. Notes A user with a computer administrator account can create and change passwords for all users on the computer. Users with limited accounts can create and change their own passwords, as well as create their own password hints. If a user with a computer administrator account changes the password for another user, that user will lose all EFS-encrypted files, personal certificates, and stored passwords for Web sites or network resources. Notes To open User Accounts, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click User Accounts. For more information about user accounts, click Related Topics. Related Topics

Forgot password for the main user.


If there any other IDs/users on the computer that have "administrative" privileges, logon to that ID, and change the password for the 'main' ID.

If not, try booting into "Safe Mode", and then change the password.

My laptop has a password and i typed in the password that it should bet yet it isnt working, as soon as i turn the computer on it comes to a screen saying enter passowrd. My laptop is an acer travelmate...


Is this computer a member of a domain or just local?
If a domain member, contact your administrator to reset the password for you.

If local (or in a workgroup)
Log in as a local administrator, then you may be able to reset your password.

When logging in, type, Administrator as the user name and type in your password (if you remember). Try password as blank first if you haven't set a password. Default password is usually 12345

Once logged in:

Click Start, right-click My Computer, select Manage.
Under Computer Management --> Expand System Tools --> Local Users and Groups, the select Users folder.

Locate your user name on the right pane, right-click on your username, then select Set Password. Change your password.

Pls let me know if this solution worked for you.
