    ADMINISTRATOR RIGHT’S

    Locked

    by jjones870 ·

    My grandson somehow removed me from the administrators privleage’s on my Windows XP Pro OS
    on my PC. Now Every time I try to go into systems manager or run certian Office proceedure’s, I get a error message, saying to see my pg administor to get authorized. I am the admin.,but it’s not even letting me re-format my PC.
    How do I fix this?

      Boot up in safe mode (tap F8 during boot-up) and logon with the Administrator account.
      Right-click My Computer
      Choose Manage
      Click Users and Groups
      Click Groups
      Right Click the Administrators Group and choose Properties
      Add your account

      Log on as the son and create another user acct with admin rights then make yourself an administrator again and cut the son down to Power user. And have a firm talkin’ with that boy :-).

      This doesn’t really make sense. If you boot to the XP CDROM, run setup and select to do a fresh install of the OS by reformatting you wouldn’t be prompted for an administrator login or password untill the installation was was allmost finished.
      So perhaps there’s a virus or something else.

      You can get a program that will change the admin login and password. http://www.mirider.com/ntaccess.html
