  1. Is it your PC? Do u have the original Windows disc?
  2. You need to enable the admin account, not sure if this works on Starter.

    1. Open a command prompt, but choose to run it as administrator.
    2. Type and then enter .. net user administrator /active:yes
    3. Logoff and you should see an admin account picture
    4. Do what you need to do as admin.
    5. Login as user.
    6. Open a command prompt, but choose to run it as administrator.
    7. Type and then enter .. net user administrator /active:no

    Leaving the admin account active is a big secuirty risk.
