Only an administrator account can create an administrator account or change another account to one. Perhaps the default administrator account has no password. You could try to log in that way and create one for yourself or change your current one. If you cannot log in as an administrator, you're going to either have to find a way to reset the administrator password or contact someone who knows what the default password is. You said it's a new computer. Contact the seller....or, if you have recovery disks, you can wipe out your system, start fresh, and make yourself the administrator during the installation. Good luck.
I have a new laptop running vista.
I am trying to use Spybot S&D but after the program scan completes and I try to "fix selected problems" I get a message that says that I need to run this program as an administrator
How do I change my level to "administrator"
