I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Create a new user in User Accounts in Control Panel called Mark (Administrator privlidged)
Log off, then log on to the new user - Mark

This will fix your documents folder to:C:\Documents and Settings\Mark\My Documents

The Windows registered owner can be changed by many tweak tools, or by the manual registry editing (Warning manually changeing/editing the original installed owner name can stop some programs from working or updating, including all Security updates (that have the original installation name attached)

I see "User" commonly on newly installed Windows computers. I've always preferred "WindowsXp" (no spaces) on an Xp install; and "Vista" on a Vista install.
User sounds horrible, not sure why many companies use this as the standard install logon name.

Hi Friends ... I have this laptop that has been given to me by my company and the USB ports have been blocked in manner such that I can copy stuff from my USB drive on to the machine but cannot copy in the reverse direction, ie. from the hard drive to the USB. Obviously it is to safeguard against theft of data. However, I do not deal with any confidential data and like to back up things every few days. Please tell me a shortcut to unlock my USB entirely even though I do not have administrator rights on the machine.

Hi everyone and thanks for reading I m looking for thin light hence ultrabook screen, a Ultrabook SSD, and nice with runtime but it doesn t necessarily have to be Ultrabook with a nice screen, SSD, and runtime an quot ultrabook quot laptop between - inches There are only a few requirements Ultrabook with a nice screen, SSD, and runtime First is that it has an SSD because I want it to have quick resume from standby and or hibernate I ve heard impressive comments on Samsung s quickresume or whatever it s called SSD HDD combos would be considered but not preferable A good screen with high resolution and nice colors Something more than the standard x LCD An efficient running system and ultimately good runtimes No discreet GPU is preferred for price and runtime reasons Integrated graphics are fine for me Probably the best choice for this would be an ivy bridge dual core with HD Also I d like the least possible crapware so I think I will not like an HP Price will be secondary but I think the cheapest inch Samsung series fulfills all these requirements fairly well but is quite expensive so that will be my maximum budget Cheaper is better of course Thanks for your help nbsp

A:Ultrabook with a nice screen, SSD, and runtime

The Series 9 is a great choice for the price, it has a much better screen (1600x900 PLS matte) than those crappy 1366x768 ones on a lot of other ultrabooks.

Lenovo's new Thinkpad X1 Carbon is also an awesome machine but might be a bit more expensive.

Preferably full ATX.
My main thing is that i was hoping to get one that had 2 PCI express x16 slots (2.0) to upgrade to crossfire later on but I can only find ones that have 1 x16 and 1 x4. Which...doesnt work well.
If one doesnt exist, thats fine.
I just need a motherboard that supports 8GB (which isnt hard), my phenom II x4, and at least a PCI express 2.0 x16 slot. no SATA speed preference, USB 3.0 is not important to me, although its a nice feature. (and preferably not have the whole board cluttered with everything in a cramped space, might upgrade cooler for overclock eventual).

Im having a hard time finding one that's reliable and consistently built.
Please let me know.

i am having touble with a Toshiba eStudio 350 that will not print over the network(static ip, connecting to winserver2003 r2). over usb it is fine, and i can copy/scan documents but whenever i try to print the data light flashes, the computer says the job was sent to the printer, but nothing happens! driving me up the wall in the job log it comes up as a print job, with my username :4030 and the date/time but no paper/pages/sets info. can someone suggest anything? thank you in advance
 

A:Toshiba eStudio wil not print, puts :4030 next to username

On that PC over the static IP you need to make sure that the printer drivers are installed for that IP printer.

Add Printer as local printer buy over TCP/IP by typing in the printer IP and host name. Once this is done, you select the printer name and model. The driver needs to be forwarded over to your PC since your using a server to host the printer.

If you were going to build a machine that would be a nice machine for doing some AVCHD video editing what would you suggest? This is kind of a survey I guess as to what would you put in it? Budget is around $2000
 

A:Building a nice video editing machine - suggestions?

Personally, I would go with an i7 950 for the CPU and one GTX 570 as the graphics card. Multicard solutions for video editing can be troublesome, in my experience. Also, ATI drivers have frustrated me so many more times than most Nvidia drivers have.

HDDs ... $2000 really wouldn't allow room for any SSDs unless you used a very small one for the OS and video editing programs. For mass storage you might want to go with a few 7,200 rpm drives with at least a 32 MB cache, although a 64 MB cache would be ideal. The black versions of WD drives hold my respect. Perhaps this would be a good time to go for a redundant RAID 1 setup.

RAM ... tri-channel DDR3, of course, but I am honestly not sure how much you'll need currently or a few years from now. A good brand of 6 GB (2 GB x 3) or 12 GB (4 GB x 3) should work nicely.

I have an hp mini 1000 netbook with the admin passwords in the bios and win xp. It was my cousins who is no longer with us, so my aunt gave it to me. Noone knows the passwords. How can I bypass them or override them? I can get in as a guest but it is too limited. What are my best options?
 

A:HP Mini admin password unknown

You need to talk to HP, after changing the registered ownership, and may need a document about the fate of the previous owner. You may have to send it to a certified HP service center with a formal notice of change of ownership included.
As for TechSpot, there is a policy to not provide assistance with passwords.
What you want to do is usually very difficult in the best of circumstances.

I have a Dell Latitude D630. It has an admin password for the bios. Nothing is locked except for the settings. I can't change any of the settings in the bios. It lets me boot to windows just fine though. My question is, since I don't know that admin password for the bios, if I upgrade the bios firmware, will the admin password be deleted? Since I'm flashing the bios, I would think that all the settings will be lost. Is that the case?

OK, my subject line might sound cryptic! Here is my set up: first router (main) is connected to the cable modem and provides std addresses as 192.168.1.2 (base is 192.168.1.1) etc. I have a second router (same brand) as a gateway connected to my main. This second router base address is 10.10.10.1 and all that are connected to this one have manually provided IP addresses (such as 10.10.0.2, etc). The main one provides WIFI access as for the second one do not.

Now my question: from my laptop who uses the WIFI network, how can I reach or connect to the other network (the one that is managed with the router with the 10.10.10.1 address? The purpose? I would like to access the computer connected to it as if they were part of the WIFIed network. And be able to access the router management page. Any clue?
 

A:Cascading routers - how to access admin features from one to the other?

first some basics;

examine the router (the box itself). everything attached to a LAN slot will default to
routing upwards using the WAN slot -- that's a big clue as to what the routing tables looks like.

second; to manage the configuration of a specific router:
a) WIRE a system directly to it
b) login to the router config page using the current router's ip-address

if your network is
modem---router#1----router#2---router#3

then a system attached to routerX will route upward to router(X-1) and NOT downward to router(X+1)

if you wish to have ALL systems (wired and wireless) see and share with each other, then you have too many distinct address.
Leave router#1 as is. disconnect router#2 from #1 and wire router#1 to a LAN port on router#2, leaving its WAN port empty. Log into router#2 and disable DHCP.

Now do the same for the wire from #2-->#3 and disable#3 DHCP.

All systems (wired or WiFi) will get ip-assignments from router#1 and will be able to
ping and share files.

A:FPS issues but nice PC, any idea why?

Yes it has 8600m cards in sli, but you need to remember one thing, the big "M" behind those 8600 cards, standing for mobile, they are low powered scaled down versions of the original in sli. What you're getting from this thing is completely normal. You cant expect a laptop of any size to aquire 90 fps in a game with full detail and high resolutions. Unless you want to buy those gtx 260m sli laptops, then maybe.
1440900 is the highest resolution on that thing from all the different review sites I see. If you wanted a higher resolution you should have went with the "sli4" version of the line.

Cannot Login to Netgear DG834G router wirelessly from Dell Laptop

Hi heres hoping you can help me.

I have a wireless connection through a Netgear DG834G from a Dell M6300 running Windows XP which is working fine with respect to accessing the internet..

I also have a desktop (wired to the router) which is also running fine.

The problem is that I cannot log into the router wirelessly as Admin on 192.168.0.1
I can login to the router as Admin from the wired PC, but not the laptop !!
I get to the login screen to input password but when pressing enter the login box just re-appears with the password field blank again.
I know the password entered is correct and accurate as it works from the wired desktop

(note: I have changed my laptop recently from HP to Dell, I was able to access the router wirelessly as Admin to perform maintenance with the HP model)


Any ideas ?
 

A:Cannot connect to wireless router as admin wirelessly

Are all the settings correct for the wireless laptop.
encryption method WEP, WPA, WPA2
passwords

Does the router even see this new laptop?
Do you still have the older laptop?
Check to see if the DELL firewall is disabled under Windows, make sure it off.
Try opening up a session: ping 192.168.0.1
Does the laptop get IP by DHCP,

ipconfig /release wait.... ipconfig /renew wait... try it again does work then
try static IP then do ipconfig /flushdns and ipconfig /registerdns

If all still doesn't work try..
re-joining the wireless router
disconnect using the wireless in range method on the laptop
reconnect but remove the password then re-do it then click on connect see if the wireless laptop can connect.
If it does reboot the laptop and login with your login ID password
Now open the browser and see if you can get into your router
Make sure you do not have any spyware or popup blocker active..

I recently bought a dell inspiron 6400 N series computer from a fellow soldier who left to return to the states. I was planning on using this computer for movie watching and to save pictures on to send to family. I went to turn it on one day after using it for a week and the computer started up to a screen that asked me for an administrator password. I did not receive this password or do not have knowledge of one that was saved. I cannot use this laptop and I was just starting to enjoy it! This was my way to have some down time away from this place. Can someone try and help me please? I tried to email rustam_ but got no reply. I tried to go to different websites but found no help. Someone please help me! I would really appreciate it.
 

A:Lost Admin Password in IRAQ help Dell6400 Inspiron

I'm assuming this is a windows password we're talking about here, and that you're running XP. If it is asking you for a BIOS password (black screen, white text), then you're probably screwed, unless there is a BIOS reset jumper within easy reach. If not, have fun opening the entire laptop to find it.

If it gets to windows and wants a password, try this:

grab either active password changer (http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Back-Up-and-Recovery/Active-Password-Changer.shtml)

or

Offline NT Password & Registry Editor (http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/)

Follow the instructions closely and there's a good chance one of the two will work.

I recently purchased a Dell Inspirion B130. A guy was moving and needed the extra $. I was shown the laptop when he was already logged on. He wrote down the password exactly the way it was to be entered. When I finally decide to check out the laptop a few days later I'm unable to log on nor even attempt safe mode. I get a white screen asking for the administrator password. I got the transfer of ownership taken care of through dell but can't get support cause the original warranty expired. I tried <ctrl> and F11, pressing F8 2 to 3 times during the boot screen. I'm not to comfortable with taking my laptop apart but if necessary I will. Can someone help me?

A:Making XP and 2000 play nice

Do you have the "use simple file sharing (recommended)" option ticked or unticked in My Computer | Tools | Folder options | View Tab? If it is ticked then I would recommend un-ticking it. Create a new folder under My Documents, right click on it and select the "sharing and security" tab, set the folder to be shared and give it a share name.

Also, have you tried connecting to the Desktop using '\\name\c$' this should prompt you for a username and password, use an administrative account.

Do you have any third party firewall software runnning on the desktop computer?

Last night since I was having slow/non-existent connection issues, I turned off the NAT option on my Belkin wireless G router. Immediately afterwards I lost internet connection as I expected but now can't connect to the config page @ 192.168.2.1 . I tried running the setup software again and it can't communicate with the router, either. Tried hitting the reset button several times, disconnecting the router, etc. but the config page still won't load. Is there anyway to manually revert the router back to factory settings?
 

A:Can't connect to admin page on Belkin Router

So this is with the pc connected directly to the router via an ethernet cable?
Go to My Network Places, and on the left theres a thing that says "show all UPnP devices" or similar. Click on it, then go to your LAN settings and set your IP address to auto, or 192.168.2.3 vice versa. Plug in/turn your router back on and it should come up as a network place. From that doubleclick it and enter admin etc..

I have an older HP900 laptop which is a nice size to take in our motor home. However, it overheats after running for about 15 minutes. I understand there is a bios update that turns the cooling fan on sooner but I can't get into the bios because of password protection. Any ideas on how to crack the password or any pins to short to reset it?

The laptop will run fine if I rais it off the table and have a fan blowing on it from behind. Cooling fan in laptop runs, but it only comes on shortly before a shutdown if I am not running an additional fan blowing under it.

thanks for any ideas or help

Hello guys
(sorry for my grammar)

in these days i am going to buy a new Pc, with a motherboard D915PGN INTEL

but the joke is choice the video card and i have this option

http://w2-bs.deltron.com.pe/modulos/productos/items/postsql.php?item_number=VDFPCSAPX1300

the cost in my country to buy is aprox of 160 dollars, is very cheapest than others of the
same capacity (512mb)

the question is if "SAPPHIRE" is a good choice or good company of video cards
and if this card is an excelent choice

the features of this card are agree with the maket to play doom3 and quake4???

have some problems with linux? special with Fedora Core 4

if this card is not a good choice, please give me models in ATI and Nvidia to buy


thanks a lot for your time
 

A:trying to buy a nice card - help me please

It looks like that video card will work in your system.

But that card is a very low performance card. For the newer games, I wouldn't really recommend that card. What other choices do you have?

Here is an excellent article to compare the PCIexpress cards.
http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/12/02/vga_charts_viii/

I'd say as a MINIMUM you want the 6600GT card.

Good luck!

That really depends on what you intend to use the card for....gaming, in place of a home stereo, recording purposes, or just general all around stuff?
I don't have the greatest gaming rig set up, but as far as for a stereo or for recording, the EMU cards are amazing. I have the 1820 installed on my other computer where I do all my recording. It's crystal clear for playback, as well as having enough outputs to satisfy whatever speaker configuration you have.
A few of my friends have newer SoundBlaster Audigy cards, and they say they work well, but I've never tried them myself.

Fortunately, not all errors in the Event Viewer (EV) are real problems. Actually, many are not problems at all. You can adjust the size of the records that are being held in the EV by right-clicking either Application, Security or System and selecting Properties. You can set the size of each file to keep or clear.

Hello I have a friend who used his computer yesterday and today when he attempted to logon to his computer as himself (admin) it tells him "user profile cannot be loaded". I attempted to help him boot into safe mode and change his password. He changed it and it still brings up the same error message. He does have another profile account that his daughter uses but no admin actions can be taken from her account. What can I do to help my friend? This is a challenge I have never encountered during my learning of how to troubleshoot pc's.

Apparently when logging into Yahoo once, I didn't succeed in clicking down to the password space before typing my password. Now when I go to type in my username it not only shows the correct username but also the incorrect one with my password included.

I've tried to find how to delete that one entry but can't. Also could only find how to stop showing my username at all by removing all site usernames & passwords from the memory. As my wife also uses this computer, I don't want to do that either for myself or for her.

Hi all So the situation is this I had to setup an existing PC in Admin Privileges Lost the office for a new starter and decided to be lazy and simply change the user account name Lost Admin Privileges I know that was a schoolboy error Since doing this the computer allows me to login fine with the new username password but keeps asking for the Admin login details whenever I try to make system changes update software etc The user account I changed was the admin account so not sure why this is happening I ve tried using every username password that has ever been assigned to that PC but nothing works Is there any workaround to get Admin privileges back so I can fix this FYI - The PC is a member of our work domain so figure this has further complicated things Really hoping this isn t going to need a full re-installation of windows fingers crossed someone out there can give me some good news Thanks in advance nbsp

A:Lost Admin Privileges

The prompt for Admin during installs is actually a good thing (that is the UAC and you REALLY want it to prompt) BUT you can almost always use any log in the Administrators Group

use CP->User Accounts
add user
set type = Admin
*must* add password to it

save and close

runas /user:$whatever$you$just$created cmd
give that password

it will then create the %profile% for that new user

From then on, you can reply with $whatever$you$just$created and its password

A:Accidentally deleted admin account by changing user name

Start Windows system restore before you boot. Tap F8 key as it's turning on, you'll get the option (Windows 7).

So I can't install my adobe acrobat pro unless I'm logged in under admin.
Any idea how I can do this to my other account?
This happens with multiple programs, not just adobe.
I am running windows xp Pro
 

A:Software won't run unless under admin account

make the other accounts admin. or install software for all the users.

if you only have limited account restart computer and keep pressing F8 button and when options show up choose Safe Mode and choose Administrators Account.

Hope it helps

Hi all,

a works laptop has gone screwey (it mainly affects the user account) and i need to get the pop3 mail settings etc off that account.
It lets me log in as admin only, albeit very slow and haphazard. It hangs when trying to log in as the user.
Whilst logged in as admin is there any way i can access the users email and export to a .pst so i can then re-import it onto a working laptop? If i log in to the user in safe mode, then try opening outlook it comes up with an error, asking me to restart the program or reinstall.
Using Outlook 2003 on XP Pro SP2 laptop.
Thanks for any help offered
 

A:Exporting users .pst from Admin account

Just browse to the relevant folder in the user's Documents and Settings..

If it denies access, take ownership of the folder and subfolders.

Hi,

I have had the issue in the past of people changing my computers passwords and I simply boot from my usb or cd and reset the password. However somehow the password was changed on my LG Flatron N1941w and it has neither a usb port or a cd drive. The only thing I can think of at this point is converting the mouse/keyboard port to usb and booting from that...but there must be a simpler way? any input appreciated
 

A:Changing admin password without usb/cd capabilities

Did you attempt to boot into Safe Mode?

IF/once you get there,

change the pwd for the admin account(s)
use a better method of picking passwords - -
see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Password_strength
https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/32040?hl=en

Also understand that multiple accounts with Admin rights allows any of them to change all passwords - - obviously just not going to work.

In addition, allowing multiple persons to share the same account has the same problem.

Quick question. Hope this is the right forum. When you open a site by clicking run as admin, instead of open. Will it run as admin, for just that time or all times after that?
 

A:Run as Admin.

Just for that one time, you need to allow it each time unless you change the permissions on it.

Hello everyone the other day I shutdown my computer then upon restarting it - I entered my password at the login screen as password *correct* 7 admin rejects Windows I always do Now I know for a fact it is the right password And the strange thing is when I get the error Wrong username or password it doesn t happen immediately it goes like it s about to start windows then comes back to the error Now I have bypassed it somehow by pure will by entering the password over and over again And when I was finally logged in I did a system restore to see if that would work But upon restarting it brought me Windows 7 rejects *correct* admin password back to the login and the problem remains trying to get back in again Also I went and set the setting to bypass the password by unchecking it in the control panel So now when restarting my computer it goes automatically to the error instead of the login screen So before even typing the password it just presents the error right off the bat This is all very strange any help is appreciated ------------------ System details Windows home premium bit Toshiba Satellite a Intel Core i nbsp

I?m working on a PC running XP pro that had an Admin account on it. I wanted to add another user and was not able to. The PC was on a net work now it?s off the network and in a workgroup. When I was not able to add a user I switched the work group to a different workgroup. Added my new user, in doing that I got an error saying something about enable sharing files. I enabled or disabled can?t remember. At that point I was able to add my user. After I rebooted I no longer had the admin account and the desktop came up with a new screen saver. I did not delete anything. I need some advise to get the admin account back. Thanks!

My friend recently bought a new Windows 8 laptop which she set up in her name and therefore has a passworded Admin account. I also partitioned the HD so that the smaller portion (C) contains the OS and the larger portion (D) is for all her files.

Since I am only using the laptop temporarily my passworded 'standard' user account is located in (C) and cannot be viewed by anybody else, however, I can view my friend's files which are now being stored in 'D'.

Is there a way to protect the files in the 'D' partition in the same manner as if all accounts were on one drive and password protected?

Tom.

Toshiba (Satellite C50-B-14D) isn't starting properly, and keeps bringing up a blue troubleshooting page. There are options I'd like to try (refresh the PC, system restore etc.) however, every time I choose one of them, it says there's no admin account on the laptop. Each restart just brings it back to the same page. Stuck in a circle. The laptop didn't come with a disc (it doesn't have a disc drive) so that's not an option. I'd also like to keep the files on the laptop if that's possible.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A:Laptop not loading - 'no admin account'

To start with, either remove the hard drive and slave it to another computer to copy the data off of it
or, use a bootable drive to boot into another OS and then copy the data to an external drive (may require disabling SecureBoot and enabling legacy/CSM).
 
Once that's done, start with these free, bootable diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html
Again, you may have to disable SecureBoot and enable legacy/CSM in order to boot from the disks
For the hard drive diagnostics you'll have to either work on finding a bootable diagnostic for a USB drive - or test the drive when you slave it to a working computer.

A:dialup username cannot change back

Why not create a new dialup account (using the Wizard if you like) and make that the default?

I've never seen anything like this in my 6 years of tech support.

A user on a Lenovo T400s, Win XP, experiences the BSOD when he attepts to log in with no admin rights. We're currently in the process of locking down our environment and yanking away rights from about 90% of the environment.

So when logging on with my account, and then another tech's account....no issues. Of course - both of us have full rights as tech support. I have two other users (non-tech) log on....BSOD for both of them.

Restore the original user's admin rights.....he's in. No prob. It has me stumped. I want to save re-imaging the laptop as a last resort as it was done a few months ago by a different tech (and I believe it was for the same issue). Obviously it was a temp fix.

Anyone ever seen a non-admin BSOD?

It seems to be the week for silliness with IE
Anyone any ideas why IE7 should suddenly without any warning or known changes (updates are automatic) stop processing any pages once you have entered a username and password?
It has happened on two machines both running AOL over a shared router.
 

A:IE stops processing pages after keying username and password

Update -
After resetting all the security bits in IE, Windows Security and the McAfee (spit) software and getting nowhere, I disabled all security in router = no good.
I then reset the router to ex-factory settings which did no good either.
I then fitted a new wireless router, reinput the same username and account details and it worked a treat.
Now why do you suppose a modem router should be selective about which websites to allow network systems to open? Beats me.

Suggestions will help!

Check the Internet Mail Options (where you enter your POP3/receiving info. Check in the Edit option for your ISP)
Most email-programs let you change the settings for when you download email. One option is: delete after download, another is: leave on server.
Another way would be to use webmail to read your email on the server and leave as is.

You'd probably be better off wiping it and starting from scratch. Too much of a hassle just to get it working and you'd probably still have issues later on.

We currently have an email forwarding service to our Exchange Server. They handle the spam/virus et al protection before it hits our server. We're looking to consolidate all our connection services/web hosting etc.
My question: Is there anything we need to consider in terms of managing our email in-house via basic DNS forwarding vs a managed service? Is it a complicated process if we already have SBS 2003? Am I freaking out unnecessarily?

A:When installing Yahoo Messenger It tells me that im not admin...

Since you did not mention which OS that you are using, I am assuming that you are running Win XP Pro.

Being able to access everything doesn't necessarily means that you have administrative permission. Maybe you should just logon as the local administrator and install these software and then log back on as your normal self.

In addition, while you are logon as the local administrator, you can also give the local admin permission to your local account by following the procedure below:

1) Right click on "My Computer" icon on your desktop
2) Select "Manage" from the popup menu to launch "Computer Management"
3) Click on "+" next to the "Local Users and Groups" to expand it
4) Next click on "Groups"
5) Double-click on "Administrators" from the Right Panel
6) Click on "Add" button
7) Type in your local username and click "OK" a few times until you return back to "Computer Management"

That's all.

Hope that helps.

Hello. This is my first post and I am in great need of help.
I have 2 hdd 1 primary and 1 slave. The slave has MS XP but is corrupt. This drive also has files I desparately want to recover. I was able to recover all files in shared documents and unprotected files but I cannot access the files in my personal account which is password protected. All ( and various ) attempts to fix the OS have failed.
Is there any hope?
Thank you.

A:deleting admin password from corrupt drive

Welcome to TechSpot

You can take ownership of these files as follows:
Boot XP into Safe Mode (Press F8 a few times when starting up) as an administrator. Now use Explorer to go to the folders etc. on your old-drives, right-click them, select Properties, click the Security tab and click OK if a security message pops up. Click Advanced, then Owner tab. In the Name list select your (administrator's) name. Mark the Replace Owner on subcontainers and objects check box. Click OK, Yes and OK.

For taking ownership of files, rightclick them, Security tab, Advanced, Owner tab. In Name list select Administrator or Admin-group and click OK. Click Add and in the "Enter the object...list" type a user or group account or Administrator. Click OK. In the group or user name list, click the account you want (e.g. Administrator), then tick the check boxes for permissions, e.g. Full Control [Allow].
