    User Accounts (XP Pro)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29>
    I am having a problem with account types; I originally started with the Administrator account that is provided (which I chose to appear on the logon screen), two power users and a limited user account. For some reason (which now I can't remember <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15> ) I added another account which I titled Admin and made an administrator account. I later decided to delete this account and tried to delete it using the original Administrator account but could not because one account must remain an administrator account (but I was using the original Administrator account . . . ?) I then changed my limited user to an administrator and deleted the admin account and when I went to change the limited user back I was unable to because there was not an Administrator account (which there is . . . )
    What have I done? And more important - how do I undo it?
    Thanks.

    HUH? What did you just say? OK you were using the original Administrator Account as your Desktop { which by the way is better off left to be used only when needed } Then you decided to setup another Account with Administrative Privaleges, called Admin. Which by the way was a good idea { except with a different name}and should of been the one you used all the time. To be honest with you I would have kept that one to use, that way if anything ever goes wrong you could boot up to your Administrator Account and fix it.
    Have you tried booting up to your Administrator Account { tha real one} and changing your limited user back to limited user? If you can thats what I would do, and then create a user account and give it Administrative Privaleges. Then use the New Account you created and only use the Administrator Account when needed.
