No Administrator Account (Windows 8) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was helping my mom with her laptop because she kept complaining that she had to put a password in every time she logged on. There is only one user on her laptop. I looked online how to remove the log in password and it said to open Run and type netplwiz. I unchecked the box that said users must enter a password on the top, and it removed the administrator property somehow. Now, whenever a program needs administrative permissions, It doesn't let me click yes to allow. On the bottom it says enter an administrator password, but no accounts are available because theres only one account on the laptop. I tried to make a guest account instead so she didn't have to enter the password and you need to be an administrator to add users. Is there any way of getting admin back?
     p.s. I apologize if this is in the wrong category of forums, they're quite unclear to me.
