For the Dell Mini 9s running XP home is there an Admin user? When i got to MSCONFIG i get the error that other people have mentioned: An Access Denied error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an Administrator account to make the specified changes.

My main problem is not changing the items in the MSCONFIG window, it is getting the admin rights. Another thing I noticed that when right-clicking on "my computer" and then "manage", usually you will see a user accounts type option i think right underneath the event viewer info. Where has this gone?

Can i just log in as Admin, if so what would the password be, I was never given any options like this in the set up.
