Keeps asking for administrators password?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Administration' started by ***** charles, Jul 2, 2007.

  1. Hi all,

    My new Dell all of a sudden started asking for my
    administrator account password periodically. I am
    using Vista Home Premium. I don't know what I
    did to trigger this activity since it didn't do it just
    after I got it several weeks ago.

    Any ideas?

    thanks,
    charles......

  3. I tried to boot into "safe" mode to logon as Administrator and there
    is no such entity any more. I logged back into regular mode and I
    am logging in as an administrative user. I didn't think what I was
    trying to do required administrative rights and even if it did I thought
    I was already an "administrator".

    later.....
