My computer is a stand alone PC and not connected to other computers. How do
I remove the administrator from my PC as I do not know the password. This was
done incorrectly. I really do not want to format my PC as I have important
info on it.

I cannot back up any data as the computer requests administrator to backup
the data.

Help please.

It says it's for NT but it works fine in XP.
