Hello,
I have a problem. I accidently changed an administrator account and now I have only two standard accounts. I can not do any changes or make any downloads . I can not create a new administrator account. Is there any one out there who can help me solve this problem?

You changed the Administrator account.... how? Reduced it to a standard User? Renamed the password?

Did you have System Restore enabled and have a restore point to recover from? If so, you can use these steps to "restore" to a previous state...

Hi misan2000,


sadams04 answers is also the helpful for you but, if this will not work for you then you should use the Third Party Password Remover tools to reset your Administrator Account Password on your may be it will work on your computer.

You cannot have zero admin account. Windows just wouldn't accept that. I'm sure you have at least 1 admin acc. yet. Check properly.
