Adminstrator Privileges

  1. I inadvertantly deleted the main user name from Windows and now it won't allow me to install programs, etc. The remaining user account won't allow me to install programs, etc to my computer.
    Anytime I try to make changes it indicates that I have to log in as Administrator.
    How can I bypass the Administrator account which does not show on my user account.

    I'm not sure if this will work but try System Restore to get your account back.

    If that doesn't work, you could try creating another administrator account. Once again, I don't know it this will work since I've never deleted my main user account but it's worth a look.

    No it doesn't work. It won't allow me to restore.
