    What is a System Administrator?


    Hi. Now that I have online classes due to the coronavirus, I have to take some classes on the Zoom app, but when I try to download the app it tells me that I need to switch out of S mode to do so. Then, when I try to switch out of S mode it tells me I need to check with my IT or System Administrator. My computer says the same thing when it tells me that I need to change my computer password every so often, and it says it is because of my System Administrator. I am wondering how I can fix this because this is my computer and no one else would be considered an administrator for it. Please help!

    :)

  2. System administrator and You Tube restricted mode

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    1. Are you using a local account or Microsoft account?
    2. How many user accounts are there on the computer?
    3. Do you have another administrator account on your computer?

    I suggest you to refer the following link to Disable or enable Restricted Mode - Computer - YouTube Help for YouTube.

    If you are having another administrator account on your PC, you can login to the administrator account and provide administrator access to the user account. Follow the steps mentioned below.

    Steps:-

    1. Tap on Windows + R on the keyboard.
    2. Type netplwiz in the run box.
    3. Under the Users tab, click on the
      user account and click on properties.
    4. Under Group Membership, select Administrator from the list.
    5. Click on Apply and OK.

    Hope it helps.

    Use Option Five again, but this time boot from a Windows 10 install usb or recovery drive. You only get asked to select an administrator account if you boot from the system's own Advanced Startup.

    Got the laptop. It's a Lenovo G500 so possibly has Lenovo stuff in the way? Anyway, booted it normally and it opens into a regular account without admin privileges. Rebooted it into Recovery mode (per Option 5) and get Lenovo logo and Preparing Automatic Repair message; then Select Account + "You need to sign in as an administrator to continue but there aren't any administrator accounts on this PC". There is an option "Forgot your password or don't see your account?" but selecting that brings up a screen which should list admin accounts but there aren't any. Pressing the only option on that page Restart leads eventually to a BSOD with Stop code: 0xc00002e3 (which I know is misconfigured o/s or missing or damaged system files).

    Can anybody suggest next steps in resolving this?
