    I have been messing around with Sharepoints tonight trying to get some networking done and have somehow managed to make my account not administrator anymore.

    I cannot change anything on the computer! Need someone urgently to tell me how I can make my account have administrator permissions again!

    Please! thanks!

    Well if there is only 1 user account on your machine than it is automatically the Admin. If you can't remember the password for the Admin account then use your Tiger install disc to reset the password.

    EDIT:
    Also if you have more than 1 account and yours is NOT Admin, then you can open up system preferences and the Accounts pane. In there you can make anyone on the machine an Admin.
