    Help with a bunch of login things


    I have a new HP laptop and was trying to set up the free internet security offered through my internet provider. In the process I somehow set up the main admin account as someone else's email address.

    Now when I turn my computer on it comes up with an email address which is not mine, and I can enter my password and it gets me into the computer, but obviously not into this other person's email account.

    Any idea how to reverse this? It happened about two months ago and I feel like I've tried everything.

    If there's anyone with any idea I'd greatly appreciate it, and can give more info if there's something else you'd like to know for clarification.

    Thanks!

    Hi damn23 and welcome to Tenforums.
    Why not create a new admin user the way you want it, copy all your data over to the new account, and then delete the old account?

    That's what I would do...fairly simple.

    OK thank you, I will do that.

    I'm not knowledgeable at all when it comes to such things, so I'm glad to hear of this simple fix.
