ADDING AN ADMINISTRATOR
Posted on 2006-06-05
I have a stack of laptops that I have been told to turn into something useful. So I'm going to make them multimedia training tools. I want to do three things and I hope someone can help me:
1. delete the existing user;
2. add a new user that can use the existing software on the laptop (all our licenses are intact);
3. we have a custom bootup screen that displays, how do I get rid of that and put something else in.
These are Dell Latitude C series, using Win XP Pro. They will not be connected to a network.
I tried going to User Accounts, and adding another administrator, and just typing in a new name (Green Grass), but it said they could not be added because they do not exist. Do I just make up a domain?
Any help would be appreciated. I'm a Win98 guy, not XP Pro.
