    :mad: HELP, HELP, HELP,
    I am running Windows XP pro and am locked in the administrator mode. I did something stupid I shouldn't have and don't know how to fix it. Is there anyway I can disable administrator? I get an error "StringERROR_ADMIN message when I start my computer. Is there anyway I can fix this myself? I am computer stupid but can follow step by step instructions. I am unable to download anything. I have tried system restore but it won't let me do it since I am not an administrator.

    Welcome to the forum. In the future, however, you are better off sticking to your original post. http://forums.techguy.org/t219384.html

    Did you try to restore per the other thread? What did you do, do you remember?
