    No Administrator! (XP Home)

    I'm working on a brand new Dell. The Owner allowed his kids to share and set up User Accounts - Limited. Daughter wanted to show how she could break into his account and I don't know what happened, but the end result is that ALL users are now Limited and I don't know how to work around that so that I can change settings since I can't Administrate. Any suggestions?

    AFAIK all you do is press Ctrl-Alt-Delete twice when you're looking at the normal login page and you get the Windows 2000 style login. You can then log in as "Administrator". You do know the Administrator password, don't you? It was set up on installation. If not, try with a blank password. If a password is set and you do not know it I think (but I'm not sure) that you have to reinstall Windows.
