My firm gave ma an HP Compaq Nx7300 notebook. I realised that when I log in to Windows XP with the username and password given I have limited rights on the computer. So I wanted to login as Administrator and give my user admin rights so that I can do anything I want with my computer. I searched a little and found live cd and download it from here:
Then I burned the iso on a cd and booted my laptop with it. Easily I got the Admin password. Then I logged in to windows as Admin. My problem is I can not see my user in "control panel/user account" to give it Admin rights. I think it is because they are in diffrent domains.
