Hi, on a Win98SE computer of which I at all times have been the only user and have never set up any user account other than just booting up, I have now somehow lost administrative status. When I boot up, dialog box appears asking for a user name and password. I have never entered a user name or password that I recall and all I have to do to boot to Win is click "OK" without entering anything in the box.
In Control Panel under "Users" and "Network Connections", and perhaps some others, I can't get them to open, getting only a message stating that the "administrator has restricted use of this ..." or something to that effect.
Question is: how do I re-establish myself as administrator of this computer?
I have had this computer for several years but have others also, and have sort of lost track of how things were in the beginning. Win98 was pre-installed OEM with recovery disk. My guess is that applying some "tip" brought this about, but it only became an issue in attempting to set up a wireless connection with Linksys for DSL sharing, which I was able to do anyway, but I should be able to somehow recover boss status.
