Did you downloaded that on a virus-free website like www.download.com? And one more thing, when you mean "I can't use my admin account", do you mean windows is telling you that the password you enter is wrong? If that's the case try booting into safe mode (by pressing F8 before the XP Logo). By default, XP have a built-in "Administrator" account name & the password is blank. You should be able to login with that & try to change your password on your account on the user accounts setting on control panel.

Hope this helps.

Cant install software, account permissions


The only solution is to reinstall the OS. Next time you get the urge to delete an administrator account, make sure you create a user account with full administrator privileges, before delete the previouss admin account.

Had a virus had it taken care of now i forgot my admin password now cant get internet under ny name i cant get on the internet under my name but if i sigh in under guest i can


Hello.

There is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and then reset your password.

1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly
2. Access Safe Mode
3. Key in "Administrator" in Username, with no password.
4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts
5. Select the account you want to reset the password
6. Change the password

Hope this helps.

I know an administrator tool for Windows password reset, Windows Password Breaker, which can easily reset forgotten Windows password to blank without reinstall. you can have a try.

Or 6 ways for Windows 7 password reset could also be helpful.

Trying to update bios on HP ze2315us Says I cant do it without being logged in as admin. I am logged in as admin, tried safe mode, went into bios set up and I have the password for that also, no luck....


I would reinstall the operating system just for the fact you bought it from an untrusted source (ebay). You never know what they could have installed or what settings they could have changed. I am looking at this from a security point of view. Not all rouge programs will be caught with a virus scan. They could of also set up legit windows applications to allow remote access at a later time. From your description, this computer does not seem to be anywhere near "default" or factory condition.

After a reinstall, try updating your BIOS again and see if that cpu driver still exists. You have already tried my tricks for running programs that want admin rights even when logged into an admin account...well most of them anyways.

Here are two other routes to try.
1.Update the BIOS before windows loads, don't use a windows based program. Do it from the command line.

2. Enable the default administrator account (if disabled) and log into it and try your software from that account. This account is visabled when you boot into safe mode.

Hope this helps.

use bootskin for your...well...your boot screen --

http://www.stardock.com/products/bootskin/downloads.asp

these programs work well and there are plenty of skins and screens to find on the web. google - login screens and bootskins.

you can change the text on the start button but i dont know of a program to do it safely. if you have some decent windows skills and are feeling adventerous there are tutorials etc out there to explain how to do it by hacking the explorer.exe file, but i dont recomend doing this.
i hope this helped, please rate me, thanx
