Forgot admin password, and I cannot add or delete anything on my desktop. I have another user profile set up so I can get into it but I cannot download new apps or erase old ones. So, I pretty much can’t do anything with this. Please help. Do I need to reset to factory settings? Or erase windows and install an updated version? But even that needs an administrative password? I’m lost and stuck.
