System will not boot Admin...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, working on cleaning up a system here.. was going to do the usual cleanup.. IE antivirus/spyware removal.

Sysem has 2 accounts.. one admin and one user. User is restricted so I can not install any tools etc..

Tried booting it up in safe mode.. and I can access the user account in safe mode. Still unable to install there..

Tried accessing the admin accout and it just seems to hang there.. any ideas?

Says: Administrator
Loading your personal settings...

Loaded back up to the user account... unable to use the "run as" Administrator option as the admin password is blank..... tells me unable to use blank password.

Try changing the group policy from the admin account by typing gpedit.msc in the run box, there are Crtl alt del options.

Most likely the virus / spyware fubarred the group policies and even when you change them they will have no effect. Might be time to reload.


EDIT: Also if the above doesnt work try safe with command prompt, and run system restore using this %systemroot%\\system32\
estore\
strui.exe

I think a format is at hand..lol

Unable to locate gpedit.msc.. failed... lol

Cannot do a system restore.. as there are no restore points... lol even more... Now its save all I can to CD's and format mode hahah


I am so glad this is not my system.. Theres like 45 icons on the desktop.. everything from limewire.. "Software offers"... "Game Channel" ....... Cant remove any of this crap because its an HP so the user account is restricted. Plus theres at least one virus.. "mustafx.exe" and "mustafx2.exe".. its screwed
