This is why I often write about not having XP with just one lone account. I wonder if their admin account called 'administrator' is still functional and could be used to give the other account admin rights again.
I am posting here today on behalf of a freind, She has a Dell laptop with Windows xp Media centre edition installed, She had an Admin account setup for herself but after she could no longer logon to the laptop via the welcome screen (thats another problem)only the classic logon window,she decided to change her Admin account to a restricted account.
The problem she has now is: when you go into user accounts to create new account & change pics etc.... There is no option for her to 1) change/create user accounts or 2) change the way you logon . The only choice she has is to change pic and password.
I heared a whisper that it had something to do with windows updates but i dont know enough about computers to comment. Do any of you guys know the cause of this and how it could be rectified?. any help wolud be greatly appreciated.
