hi!

i have some problems with user accouts on my computer with winxp. i always
use the computer only as an administrator without creating any account but
this time i created one and now i would like to delete it and return to work
as an old administrator. for now its impossible. i cant delete new user, i
cant log as an admnistrator with normal system start.
how can i restore default logging as an administrotor? i tried to change
configuration in boot.ini with bootcfg but i didnt work. its possible that i
had wrong syntax

please help me with that


regards
Andre

Hi Andre

You should really only use the original Administrator's Account for
troubleshooting. To logon as the Admin, press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice at the
Welcome screen. You could then create a new Account for yourself with
Admin. privileges.

Hi Andre

Your PC could be a security risk if you use the original Admin Account.
However, type or copy/paste the following into Start>Run

control userpasswords2

and then uncheck 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this
computer.'. Click Apply - you will have to know the Administrator's
password at this stage. Follow the onscreen prompts.

You can logon automatically if you create an account with Admin. privileges:

From Start>Run type in

control userpasswords2

then uncheck 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this
computer' and click 'Apply'. On the next screen - 'Automatically Log On' -
delete the name 'Administrator' from the User name box and enter your
account name and then the password in the next two boxes. OK your way out
and then reboot your system.
