The administrator account is a hidden account that you can get to by tapping the F8 key while booting, choose safe mode and administrator account. I'm curios as to why you need this, at least one of the accounts at the normal desktop will have admin privileges.

1-Boot to Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key while booting

2-Choose safe mode, Press Enter

3-Select operating system, Press Enter

4-Click Administrator Account

5-Windows is running in Safe Mode, Click YES

Probably you won't need to log in as admin because most of the times the main login (I mean your) is an admin.

If you really need, you can try to type CTRL+ALT+DEL twice at the login screen to bring a differen login screen where you can type administrator at the login field and the password, if exists.

Hello All, thanks for your replies.

I am the administrator account.

Just a problem that arose and i could not fix it, and MSN technical said to make sure i was the administrator account.

Thanks anyway, sorted, GEP

P.S. Confusion reigns here in my house anyway, lol.
