With a limited account you are unable to install any new program on your computer. But there are still two options for you to regain full access to your computer: one is reset your lost admin password; another option is promote your limited account to an administrator.

These can be done easily. To get started, you need to use an alternate PC to create a PCUnlocker Live CD, then boot up your locked PC from the CD and it enables you to either reset any user password or promote a limited account to administrator.

if it's windows xp, just press ctrl+alt+delete at the login page, log in as "adminastrator" (without quotes) and dont enter a pass.

The only way this works is if the admin account does not have a password to begin with, silly rabit.

Buy a computer, Buy software, create your own admin account, set you own password, then give it out freely so someone can make you start over : P

Yes it's restricted to stop people like you installing stuff... Ask a network administrator to install it for you. L
