Administrator account deleted


Recommended Posts

My friend has somehow deleted the Administrator account in XP (Professional)......pls, don't ask me how :blink:

He doesn't have any other account (even guest account is off).

Just after the welcome screen it asks him to click on an account to login but unfortunately there's no account shown on the screen........absolutely nothing.

I told him to re-format. But if there's any other way around this it would be better.

Any help would be appreciated. :)

Just my 2 cents, the built-in accounts Guest & Administrator are impossible to be deleted, whether intentional or by accident or malicious code (by design).

I just guess he (or...) has changed the default name to another one and can't come up with the right name.

Thare are however many tools that allow you to see and reset passowrds for such accounts.
