Administrator Issue

Posted: 09-12-2003, 04:20 PM
Two weeks ago I transferred several files to my new
desktop which is installed with XP Media Edition. Today,
I used the administrator role to set myself up and my
family as limited users. I can't find the files on the
PC before I made myself an admin. I have about 200 jpg
files that were stored under My Picutres. I didn't set
them up under share folder. I can't get to them now. Is
there anyway I can find them instead of reloading from my
zip disks?

They are in the computer under the Administraotr log on.
You will have to either give yourself administrator
provlidges or log on as administrator and move them to
your my documents. Each user has thier own my documents
folder.

we employed somebody to set up a small system for our car
dealership, he also set himself up as the systems
administrator. we cannot install new programs nor can we
update existing ones. needless to say this creep
disappeared without leaving us any info on how to remove
his work. anybody out there have any ideas??

What are the operating system versions involved ?
With or without server? As a domain ?
If only XP have you tried logging in as Administrator
with either a blank password (or the password the
person "forgot" to tell you about)?
Worse come to worse, if you do not have a domain
there are tools that will allow you to zap the pwd.
