Welcome to Tom's hardware Forums!

Go to Control panel, Users. One account will have full admin rights. Use that account and then change other accounts the way you want them to be.

Be advised that it in not a good idea to browse the internet using a full admin account. Use a Standard account for such purposes.

Hello Mr Ubrales, I'm searching for information of this problem. I was reading your post and wondering if you may have a solution.

I log onto my standard user account and want to switch to the Administrator account.
I log off the standard account (start/log off) which takes me to the Log In icons.
I click the Administrator Icon. The desktop opens for a moment then goes black. The computer stays on but no visual desktop.

Recent changes are I added a Killer Xeno Pro network card and updated to the latest drivers.

To try and correct the problem I have:
1. Deleted the Administrator password.
2. Disabled Killer Xeno network card from starting in "Start up programs", in msconfig.

Go to Control Panel ---> Users accounts and create new accounts. Delete the ones you no longer need. Leave one account with full Admin rights; not for general surfing.

Sometimes it is hard to tell what changed and why.
