Grim - *URGENT!* LOGIN HELP!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok guys.
I NEED to get the Administrator Account Password Removed from this machine.

You know that trick where, on the average PC, they DONT know.. or protect the administrator account - its just not displayed at the login screen (you have to press CTRL+ALT+DEL TWICE, then sign into it?

Well, with this dell PC, they found a way to stop that, and I dont think it was by giving the adminstrator account a Password.

When I try to log into it - it says "could not log in, due to an account restriction" or something to that effect.

here's the funny thing.
All the other accounts are administrators (have all those powers) themselves , right.
BUUUT, I STILL cant see the "administrator" account in user management

no matter who's account I use, I CANT see "ADMINISTRATOR" in
"Users" in CP.
I figure there is prolly a way to get around this.

Anyone know of any registry trick ect to do so?

Thanks.

Ahh...

I wanted to do this without using those methods

I could easily download this floppy bootable app that i use.

Prob is, they can get things ... really messed up if you know what I mean.
and I wouldnt have the resources to do a reinstall..

soo...

no

Thanks for the reply though


I think I'm just going to let this one rest.
The lady is carrying away the PC tomorrow anyway.. so.

Let it be I guess.
