New to the forum so please bare with me and my lack of tech knowledge...

So today my dad was checking out my new desktop (dell Intel core i3 windows 7) and he deleted user accounts which I believe included the admin account. Now I cannot log in past the opening windows screen when you reboot your comp.

When I go to log in it says "you cannot log on because the logon method you are using is not allowed on this computer. Please see your network administrator for more information."

I cannot get any further than this however I can access the cmd prompt by using sticky keys....

I hope he didn't do too much damage, any suggestions as to how I can solve this issue any advise is appreciated....

i just helped a friend out with this- let me find the video tutorial and i will post it- there are several ways to bypass the log on on Windows.However- this comes with a DISCLAIMER that this should ONLY be used on YOUR computer stay tuned!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3QMMaRNba4

 

Try this video - if that doesn't work, I have several others-

do you have access to another computer in the house?http://www.prime-expert.com/articles/a03/bypassing-windows-logon-screen-and-running-cmd-exe-with-system-privileges.php

 

This is one solution- but you have to have access to another computer to create the Emergency Boot CD-

What operating system are you using? After you answer that question this topic will be moved to the appropriate forum.

Am I mistaken or did the OP say he had a desktop with Windows 7?

 

If you can get to a command prompt type this

 

net user administrator active:/yes    <enter>  

 

If you do not get a access denied message you should see a new account called Administrator the next time you boot.

 

If you do get an access denied message then try the following. At the login screen press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice. In the user name type administrator but leave the password blank.

Appears you are John correct.

...So today my dad was checking out my new desktop (dell Intel core i3 windows 7)...


My fault on the forum move. I clicked on paul88ks' My PC Specifications thinking it was the OP's system specs since that reply was posted right after Queen-Evie.

I will move the topic to Windows 7.

Okay sorry about posting in the incorrect spot, when I signed up it said to post here

Am I mistaken or did the OP say he had a desktop with Windows 7?
 
If you can get to a command prompt type this
 
net user administrator active:/yes    <enter>  
 
If you do not get a access denied message you should see a new account called Administrator the next time you boot.
 
If you do get an access denied message then try the following. At the login screen press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice. In the user name type administrator but leave the password blank.


I tried this and was unsuccessful

It reads "the password does not meet the password policy..."

And the control/alt/delete X2 did not bring up another admin....

THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR SUPPORT

What can I try next?

reinstall the PC! (if you have other computer buy a CD and write it with windows 7 or what you want.) You said its new laptop so it wont be that much of a harm.

From what I have read this error is the result of not being able to login to a domain so I am not sure how you got this error or how to fix it. You can try the method outlined here to enable the local Administrator Account using the software linked to by paul88ks but I doubt this will work.
