Re: Administrator Account
If all of the administrator accounts have been changed or deleted, you can
log on in Safe Mode and the Built-in Administrator account will be available
to use. This account does not have a password, by default.
Restart the computer and start tapping the F8 key until a black screen menu
appears. Use the Arrow Keys to select Safe Mode and press Enter. Select the
account called Administrator. After safe mode starts, go to Control
Panel/User Accounts and change the original account back to an administrator
Reboot back to normal mode.
