My mom purchased a laptop from a business. It has windows 2000 professional on it. She cannot install anything on it without getting a message that states "You must be a local administrator to run this program". Is there anyway to undo this security short of re-installing windows?

Call the business and ask them for their administrator password? It's dodgy of them that they didnt format the HDD in the first place.
