Admin Acct Replaced Accidentally RRS feed

  • Question


    Im using Microsoft XP, having 2 accounts - A and B.

    A was initially belonging to the administrator group and had admin rights.

    B was belonging to the other groups - Debugging Users ....


    I wanted to switch the groups but accidentally changed A to Debugging Users before I assigned B to administrator.


    So now I have A and B both as Debugging Users, none of Admin. I want to regain one of the accounts as administrator, how do I do that? I am unable to access user accounts settings without an admin account !!


    I did not backup my previous settings and I tried to do a system restore but since I am not using an admin account, I was unable to do so.

    Are there any ways of regaining admin rights without reformatting my notebook?
