Re: administrative passwordI have

When you log into Windows do you use and administrator account or another account.   Most probable cause is that you are logging in with a Standard Account.  Do you have an administrator account set up?

Re: administrative passwordI have

When you first boot the computer, you see a login screen.  Do you log in with your Microsoft Account?
