My administrator account doesn't work! RRS feed

  • Question

  • My admin account doesn't work unless I am in safe mode. I cannot install programs, or log onto my account in normal mode. I have tried calling windows and Dell and they will not help me as my warranty expired a year ago. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get it to work? I would highly appreciate it. Thanks.

  • Not really an architecture kind of question, mate.  But wth.

    This is just like a personal desktop machine?

    I'd buy a 60 quid external USB drive.

    Copy all my data off.

    Double check I have everything.

    Go get a coffee.

    Triple check I have all the data I need.

    Re-install windows (and hence everything) from scratch.

    Then write down my administrator password somewhere I'm not going to lose it.


    Happy Paddy's day.
