today I installed a new XP to my PC, when require the username, I found that I can't use 'administrator' when entering the name during setup, so I choose other name. but this name have the admin right.
how can I login the PC using administrator after finished install?
if you're using XP pro you can log in to "administrator" at the login screen (if you use the welcome screen just press ctrl-alt-del to get the log in promt)
password is either blank or one you setup during install
If using XP Home, boot into safe mode, and admin should be availible on the welcome screen
CTRL + ALT + DEL pressed twice does NOT default to the Administrator logon, it will only switch from the "Welcome Screen" to the "Classic login". This gives the ability to enter the user name manually, rather than being restricted to what is displayed.
or you could just go to users in control panel and click on "change the way users log on or off, then uncheck welcome screen to have the classic login screen come up by default and then just type in administrator and whatever the password may have been which is blank unless you entered one, also the user you created originally has admin rights, so why would you even want to login as admin anyway?
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
