We Have Recently Inherited A Computer. Compaq Presario 5000 With Windows Xp 2000. We Are Denied Alot Of Access Because We Are Not The "administrator" Will The Windows Xp Home Version Disk Help Us Or Not? We've Read Alot Of Online That People Are Not Happy With The Disk As It "screws Up" The Hardware Etc... What Do You Think (honestly)

With XP Home, you can log on to the administrator's account by going to safe mode. Press the F8 key just before XP starts to load. Select safe mode. The use the user name of administrator. For starters try nothing for the password.

Then you can add new and change current users to be administrators.
