never had an administer password__ RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I never set up an 'Administor' accout, but 'Microsoft' must have, or onr was set up somewhere. Now I can't up-grade, or add anything to my computer.
    A box pops up with a 'screen name' I used a few yrs. ago, then it's asking for a password. I didn't know I had to set an 'Administer' accout up.
    How can I get the password, change it, or even prove I'm the owner of this computer?
    HELP!!!
