hi ive just got a new laptop with windows 7 which i made an account an administrator and another account for my younger brother which is a standard user. I forgot my and we are limited to only a few things on the 'standard user account'.
is there any way that i could change my password on the admin account or anyway i can make a new admin account, a way that i can change the 'standard user account' to an admin or any other way?
thanks.
