admin control



i am running xp pro i am the only user.
but how do i tell it to allow me into the registry
as somethings i cant use because the administrator wont allow it.

please help i'm slowly going mad and am starting to look at my old 98 disc.


log off

i may be confused as to what your asking but. try loging off then back on as administrator with no password(if you didn't give it one or rename the admin account) and i mean log off not reboot or restart. hope this helps


i'll try to explain a little better

i did give a admin password
but when i start up all i have is my user name option
so how do i log on as the adminstrator
as i dont see the option

sorry for the vagueness but i specialise in the hardware side i'm lost when it comes to software


One Step from The Edge
clt+alt+del at login

When you are at the login screen, do you see the logon icon(s) or do you use clt+alt+del (nt style login). If you are seeing icon(s), probably just one with you name, then press and hold clt+alt+del until the NT style login box appears. Then type in "Administrator" (w/out quotes) in the user name and the password you gave during the intall proceedure. If none given then leave blank as Folci explained. You can change this login proceedure once inside, if you want to use the NT style everytime.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
