    Hello guys,
    Here is the sitution. My best freind has a HCL Laptop which he received while doing MBA in Noida. His was a restricted a/c. Now he has finished his course and had brought it back home to Kolkata. He is the sole owner now. His lappy name is REHANSINGH.
    He called his Admin in Noida and requested him to give the Admintrator password , so that he can create 2 new user, one Admin & the other restricted. He got the password and logged on with it. But when he created a Admin user,lets call it Boss for simplicity, and gave the username and domain and specified "Administrator" as the a/c type, but there was an error
    The same error prompts if creating a "Standard/Restricted User".
    This is annoying as he cant install anything, his being restricted a/c. SInce he is the sole owner now he wants to have complete control over the laptop.

    PS: When he opened the User Accounts windows there was one user named "Administrator" and the a/c type was "Debugger User". Now when he wanted to change that to Administrator out comes another error
    He cant go back to Noida.
    So plz tell me the solution so that a new admin and one restricted user can be created.
    Even they have created a BIOS password, so he wont be able to boot into Linux Live OS :(

    Try leaving the domain first and switch to workgroup, i'm wondering if the computer is running a roaming profile and is looking to the network for the groups.
