I accidently changed my admin account to limited. Now I cannot get into
anything, change anything, or download. I have asked in previous emails for
help in reinstating my administrator status, but what has been told to me has
not helped at all. I hope someone can please help me. Rhonda

Simply log in using the built-in Administrator account (which
cannot be deleted) and modify the desired account(s). By design, the
only way to log into the Administrator account of WinXP Home is to
reboot into Safe Mode. For WinXP Pro, pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL twice at
the Welcome Screen will produce the standard login dialog box.

Some account MUST have admin status. You need to log into that account and set
the admin account to admin privileges.
