    Default Where the Administrator Password Box in Windows 8?

    Hello guys,

    My laptop was upgraded to windows 8 operating system. After upgrading, I was to set up a new User Account with Parental Controls.If I want to access programs it asked for the Administrator Password. But the problem is that the Password box where I have to type the password was not there and the OK also disappeared . What I could choose is Cancel. Now when I look at my Account Users, both of the accounts are set at Standard Users,

    I do not know what happened and I want to get my Administrator Status back, but I can not find the solutions.

    Pls advise.

    many thanks!

    gill123, welcome to the forum!

    This thread is quite old (11/05/10) & has probably been solved. The software that you linked has mixed, more bad than good, reviews.

    The best thing to do would be for the user to create a password reset disk, while their computer is accessible, for these type of emergencies.
