    I have never created an administrator account. I can not unistall programs or make changes without signing in as an adminstrator. I have searched through your threads but microsoft employees answer as though we all are computer programers. Please advise. IN LAYMAN TERMS. I may be a rocket scientist but I do like computers and DO NO HAVE TIME FOR THIS.

  2. Admin sign-on issues

    Hi Deborah,

    Your machine’s administrator account is considered your primary entry key to everything in your computer. If you are having an issue with installing or removing programs, it's possible that your account is corrupted. For us to come up with an effective resolution,
    kindly provide the following information:

    • Is your computer connected to a domain?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?
    • Have you made any changes on your system prior to this issue?
    • Have you already tried creating another user profile with admin access to check if the same issue will occur?

    We look forward to your response.

    How to change admin user account name?

    ah so main admin account is 'wizzle' which is what I am currently on
    I make another account called 'wizzle2' (with admin rights)
    I sign out of 'wizzle' and sign into 'wizzle2'.
    And once signed into 'wizzle2', then I do the command prompt step and find the SID for 'wizzle' that is listed and go from there?
