    I didn't establish User a/cs when I first set up my PC. I have since done so but now I can't access some progs because they are for Admin.

    I have tried starting in Safe Mode pressing F8 but I get an error mssge - Keyboard error. This means that when I do get into Safe Mode I can't do anything to change the settings.

    Any ideas anyone please?

    tks

    Log on as Administrator and upgrade the other account or uninstall the apps and reinstall them under the new account.

    Hi

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    When I do login as Admin I can't do anything because of the keyboard error - I can't type anything.

    I've also tried installing apps under Users but then I get a message saying I don't have sufficient rights.

    Thanks

    When you get to the Users Login instead of clicking on user do CTRL+ALT+DEL ....then still holding CTRL + ALT down ......hit DEL again. (i.e. CTRL+ALT+DEL x2 )

    This should let you log on as Administrator to make the appropriate changes.

    If you want Administrator to appear with the Users Icons there is an option in TweakUI .
