I am the owner and administrator on my laptop, today it won't load YIM nor will it allow me any administrator rights-run and open programs, etc.........I don't know the admin password-never had to use it to run a program, how do I fix this??

are you running XP?...very easy to hack it :)  I think this works with vista also.
Open up DOS...or CMD or Command Prompt or whatever you want to call it and type the following

net user administrator *

then after that, it will ask you to type the password in and then once again to confirm and you just changed the administrator accounts password to your choice and now you log in and have full power. Remember if its windows its easy to hack.
