    Is it possible to set up a XP computer with only 1 user account and that be as a limited user? A friend asked me to look at her netbook because she couldn't install or uninstall anything and that appears to be how it is set up. Since it is a netbook, there is no CD drive or software that came with the computer, so reinstalling XP would be a challenge. Does anyone know if XP installs a AdMin user account at setup by default and is it possible that it is invisible in the User Accounts? If so, how do I access this User Account to make the necessary changes to her computer?

    There should be an account named "Administrator" unless it was deleted. If this is XP Home, you need to boot into safe mode to login with the admin account.
