RE: Administrator Account
I don't have to log on as anyone. On my old 2000 I had to enter my username
and password, but now it goes straight to desktop and no name or assword is
asked for. There are some things that I want to chaznge or delete and this
is when it says I don't have rights. Sorry to be so vague.
