Specs: Windows Vista
It was just recently that my brothers computer broke down. So now we are sharing computers. He has made his own account on this computer and when I came back to play when he was done, I realized that he has changed my account ( the owner ) to a standard user and he changed his account ( the guest ) to the administrator. I don't know how to get to back to normal and I think it has something to do with the fact that the new administrator is a Guest account.

tap f8, go into safe mode and log in as administrator, then go to the user accounts and delete the password in his and set up a strong password for yours and put him back to a guest account

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Actually you don't make him a guest, make him a limited use. I think there is an issue with guest accounts still.

You never want to be logged on as an admin. That is a good way to get hacked. Always make a limited user for you and others to use day to day. When you need to do admin then use run as to do admin work.

I support the 'Everybody Draw Mohammed Day'. A religion doesn't deny my freedom.
