    C:\Users\Administrator ?


    I've load up via disc after downloaded the Window 8 software from the internet.

    I reformat the laptop (Window 7) and install the disc to upload.

    Everything seems to be doing what as it is, then I set up the new password.

    Now an inbox appears on the screen showing "Administrator : C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe" - C:\Users\Administrator ?

    I'm clueless what to do next and I have type in 'HELP' then Enter, there is list of words or codes, none of them seems to work for to go on to desktop ?

    I value your input.

    Apologies, I'm not sure I fully understand?

    You've installed Windows 8 and you wanted to change the password for an account. After changing the password you're seeing a command prompt? Perhaps a screenshot of what you're seeing may help.
