Well, actually, NO -- you're not ... not the Administrator, and not the only one. That is, unless you went to the trouble to unhide the REAL Administrator account and now, login using only that account -- which is, by the way, a really BAD idea!I'm the only Administrator on this lap top
What you are is a normal user with some elevated rights. What you're seeing is not unusual if you're trying to do something to one or more of the "system" files or folders.
Don't understand what you say ..
I bought the laptop and set it up by myself ..
Btw .. how do i go about to unhide the real administrator if there is one ...?
windows has it setup as hidden and didn't even ask you, its the new way of doing things I guess. check it out ,right click on the windows icon lower left corner ,go to computer management ,local users and groups ,click on users, it will be first in the list .
Some things to try:
1. Enable hidden Administrator then login to it and try to delete the fileOpen a Elevated Command Prompt
Press WIN + X to open Start context menu.
Select Command Prompt (Admin).
Enter net user administrator /active:yes and press Enter
Type exit and press Enter to close the Command Prompt window.
Note: /active:no will disable it again.
Logoff then login as Administrator.
Try to delete the file.
2. Install Unlocker and use it to delete the file.
3. Take Ownership of the file then delete it.Easiest way to do this is to add the Take ownership option to the right click Context menu.
See here: Take Ownership Shortcut - Windows 7 Help Forums
Says for Windows 7 but works for Windows 8 too.
Once installed, right click on the file and choose Take ownership then delete it.
Your user account may say your an Administrator but that just means your a member of the administrators group. Your still subject to UAC restrictions etc. You have more permissions than the standard user account type but not all that go with the hidden System Administrator account. That's why you still see the "Run as administrator" option on some things. Doing that will temporarily elevate you to full admin while running that program. One of the reasons this is done is to protect you from malware. If a nasty tries to do something in the background you should get a UAC prompt. If your not doing anything that should tip you off that something isn't right. Log in a system admin and that safety blanket is gone.
Ok .. Tried everything ... still does not work ..
It's ok , I can ignore it .
Have another problem :
I created the pass word for Admin account
Can you show me how to completely delete the pass word ...?
Bc now it take way longer to start up ..!!
One way to do it is, Log On Automatically at Startup - Bypass in Windows
Or you could go in and change password and leave it blank.
You could do this---
