user account

evelint
My client changed the default user account from administrator to limited in windows xp, the only other administrator account she has is the one builtin account for administaring the domain and the asp.net machine account which I can not access. Its only allowing me to log on as default wich is limited. I woud like to find a way to change the default limited account into default with full power of administration. Its frustrating, please help.

    Your best bet out of this problem is to remove the hard drive and install it in another pc as a slave drive so as to copy all data. Then reinstall from scratch Windows XP and setup your clients profile, copy back the data and return the reconfigured pc to your client.

    IF YOU MOVE THE INFO TO ANOTHER DRIVE AND RELOADE WINDOWS THE PROGRAMMING WILL NOT WORK. You will have to reinstall all the programs again and re-do all the mappings that you have. If you are lucky enough, you might be able to rebuild the system after the reload, but you better be ready to spend a lot of time.
