Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

How do i override an administrator password my friend bought a computer and we can only log in under guest account how can i delete the other accounts so she can create her own and make hers the administrator


Answers :

YOu need to reinstall windows and select current files and settings. Then make a new administrator account.
If it's XP, you may be able to workaround and boot up in safe mode, and select the manufacturer's admin login. Don't know if emachines does that though. To boot up to safe mode, press "F8" until a list of services appear. If the manufacturer's login exists it will be the login not normally shown in normal bootup. Select that and login, then go to control panel and create a new admin account. Delete the old admin account and you should be good.\015\012There is also a product by active called password changer but it's commercial. I've used this but you'll need a floppy disk drive. ERD 5.0 should also work but good luck finding that.
