You just use the boot disks or recovery partition that should be with the computer, it will wipe whatever is there on the hard-drive and will install what was on the PC out of the box. | Report abuse kimhellbert June 1, 2011 4:51:06 PM Perhaps you have the problem you virus and can be disturbed your PC to another user who don't know more anything as a simple user. thanks kimhellbert | Report abuse hubbardt June 1, 2011 10:36:08 PM http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administrator_password.ht... | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows XP>I Lost Administrative rights to operating system> Related ressources: ForumI Lost Administrative rights to operating system ForumLost Administrative rights ForumAdministrative Tools Menu ForumWindows xp not allowing administrative ForumLost administrator rights access ForumAdmin rights being lost on win XP pro SP3. updates? bios ?
