I've got a problem that must be a taboo subject, as no one even tries to answer my questions. I have Windows 7 Home Premium and I tried to change the Administrator tag from my girlfriend to myself. It showed immediately in her box that she was now a standard user. My tag didn't change at all. So I went and attempted to use my new classification and found that it had not changed one bit. So back I go to reverse it and leave well enough alone. I tried to make my girlfriend the Administrator again but was stopped with a small window claimng that nothing could be changed because the "Local Policy Group" had all the power. I looked into a "restore" but was told the same thing. Some of my programs won't open and the window with the "local policy group" keeps popping up everywhere. Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks

Is this your computer?

 

When you use the term "tag" are you referring to the administrative user account?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Try making a new user account with administrative rights.  You do this in the Control Panel under User Accounts.

I went to User Accounts, there is no option for opening a new account of any kind. I did click the "change your account type." I got the same small window from local priority group. I tried the other choices in Users Account with the same results. I've been fighting this thing since Thursday evening, I have Windows 10 to thank for it. Thanks again
