I have ben given a PC from work that is no longer used. It's a good machine (i5) and I want to use it in my home office. Trouble is that it's still configured for office use. I can get passwords etc. if I need to from the company that manages our office network but I am wondering if there's an easy way to convert my login to an administrator login, or at least to figure out what the Administrator login Id is so I can make the changes. I'd rather not have to reload Windows and all the software.
If it helps identify the setup I currently have, when I go in to System it says "some settings are managed by your organisation"
The company I work for only had 5 PC's but they've now downsized to 3 so they've given me two of them. Nothing sensitive on them that I don't have access to at work anyway. We use an external company to manage our network so I will get the admin password and logon from them but I was hoping there was an easier way without having to bother them. That will be easier than reloading Windows I am sure.
Thanks again for your help
