I created different accounts on my computer because I have children
I created an account for myself as adminastrator however I do not have several of the programs I had before such as nero music and in safe mode some programs do not work and it is a pain to work in safe mode. How do I create a duplicate account or how can I get all access to my admin account both are password protected
I would like to thank all in advance for assistance for the computer challenged

Go into Control Panel/User Accounts...tell us what accounts are listed.

In any case, one of those has to be the Admin account.

You can create a new account and move the settings from any account to the account...rename accounts, etc.
