This is my first post on Bleeping Computer. I have a Dell laptop running XP Pro that my daughter uses. I know it used to have a administrator on on the user accounts but now it doesn't. How can I restore the administrator account?

you could try a system restore
providing you have restore points
and if the administrar account is within those restore points
its worth a shot but no garrantees
unless someone else has idea

Thanks but I can't do a restore because I do not have administrator right.

If you boot into Safe Mode you should be able to create a new Admin account.
