You are generally correct in what you say -

 

Many of the "Hire Only" companies can install a program to keep track of their computers while they are on Rental.

I am not currently aware of this company, but the process was / is used very widely in the last few years.

 

Thank You -

More to the point...the lessor is the owner and rightfully has admin rights over his/its property...while you do not.  Any attempt to change control or admin status on that computer...amounts to illegal activity on your part...unless there comes a time when you actually have ownership rights in the system, if such time comes.

Understood...but your question probably should have been asked of the lessor or the answer available at its support site.

 

Resolution of the issue is good, thanks for letting us know.

 

Happy computing :).

If you look above...OP has already resolved situation.

 

Reinstalling Windows is not necessarily a good answer to such situations, IMO.
