    What do you mean by "get admin"?

    I can't get admin on my computer because it is blocked for some reason? when I try upgrading my guest user account on CMD to Admin status I get a message that comes up saying "system error 5 has occurred Access is denied"

    The built-in Guest account is "guest" only. You need to login to your administrative account to have administrative privileges, if that's what you mean by "get admin."

    That's the problem, I can't login to an administrator account because I don't know the password or the username. On my own laptop I only have access to half the features, I need to get admin so I can use the money I spent on this to the full advantage instead of having only half for what I paid for! please help.

    Sorry we cannot help bypass security as per the rules of this forum. This is because we can't know what the scenario truly is. We can't even tell if you own the computer. Hope you understand.
