    So for christmas I got Dads 4 year old work laptop, its a piece, but sweet as I dont mind. Anyways, I wanna set it up for myself but I need an Administrators log-on to add/remove programs and stuff...we didn't steal it, the company said we can do whatever we want with it, it's ours, but its still requiring administrators passwords for like everything but IE and word processor and stuff...
    Thanks for any help!
