Loss of Administaters rights

  Sparkly 11:53 08 Nov 2007

Hi all a friend called me with a problem that she could not uninstall Macafee.She goes to start then wants the control panel but it is not listed, to cut a long story short (over the phone) i found out as she could not remove the said programe i talked through removeing it in safe mode which did the job, there are two account users Administrater and guest,but every time the pc starts it only gives the option to sign in with the guest account with no account privilages,the only way to use the administraters account is in safe mode but when she comes out of safe mode the only account option is the one with limited rights, how can she set it back to just one person account with administative rights.
