remove computer from network domain in windows 7

    Question

  • I joined my personal laptop to company domain using my account . I can work using network drivers but I cannot install any program because it will ask me for rights as I am not administrator and I don't have network password. Is there a way to remove this domain from my computer without contacting administrator . or a way to get rights to add programs without administrator permission , please advise.

    Thanks

  • Hi Alan,

     

    You can login with the local administrator account, add your domain account into administrators group. After that, login with domain account and it will have the privilege to install the programs.

     

    To add account to administrators group, click Start -> right click Computer -> Manage -> Local Users and Groups -> in the right pane, double click Groups -> double click Administrators -> Add… -> find your domain account and add it.

  • Before it was connected to the domain you would have been using a local user account, or would have had a local admin account.  At the login screen, instead of just clicking on your domain user icon just click the 'Switch User' button and then enter your old username (in the form computername\username) and password.  Hey presto, you now have permissions to add/remove programs.
