Suddenly limited admin rights

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys

 

somehow I have limited admin rights on a laptop.

There is a message when I want to update that my "organization is managing" the rights.

How can I set it back and regain will admin rights?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

P.S. it's a university key!

did you join a domain?

or did you give another user admin rights?


Anything i've written between the * and * is not meant to be taken seriously.

keep in mind that helping with problems is hard if you aren't specific and detailed.

i'm also not a professional, (yet) so make sure to personally verify important information as i could be wrong.

The key is from university.

Even my linked account is not working anymore. And I can not link my existing account to windows.

Did you get kicked out of the university? Is your account still active with them?

Is the system joined to a domain?

I don't even know. How to find this out?

It just says Workgroup: WORKGROUP

Ok, so, no domain. 

What does the users and groups settings show for the main user?

How can I see this? 

I only know that it shows on my computer at "All Info" my name and administration. But on the laptop it just says name email and nothing else.

 

The laptop wants to know a Password now too, but we didn't set up any.

Time to take this to the University IT dept and let them sort it out

Tbh I thought about just buying a Win 10 pro key and adding it. This university licences always have problems in my experience.

Would it work without problem to update it to Pro then?

That depends on a number of things, mainly, how Windows was installed onto the system in the 1st place.

If it was a straightforward install, then yes, but I doubt it was and a pro key may either do nothing, or make the issue worse.

 

My suggestion is pull the hard drive, slap it into a spare system, back up useful data, then wipe the drive and start fresh.

That's going to be the easiest way forward.
