    I just bought a used emachines w340ua laptop with Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 and it SEEMS to only have a guest account to log into. How do I access the Admin account so that I can start to reconfigure my laptop?

    You can start in safe mode . . set up a new user, then log in under that user
