Remove Restrictions On My Computer – Please Solve My Problem

by Rohit Khurana on November 3, 2008



Today Morning, I received a mail form one the reader who sent us four snapshots of various restrictions he/she is facing on a computer.

There was nothing written in the mail other than this text – Please solve my problem and these four images as shown in the image below


After seeing all these snapshots I realized that computer on which these snapshots are taken seems to a public computer of a school, college or library etc. The user is not able to change password, and facing restrictions due to group domain policies etc.


All these restrictions are imposed through active directory group policy applied to all the client computer connected to the network including this computer which seems to be the part of this network.

Lets see how can you remove these group policy restrictions on this computer or find out different technique to do it.


Method 1:

The most simple way out to override the group policy restrictions on a computer is to either remove the system out from the domain of network. For this, right click on My Computer > Properties, in system properties menu, click on computer name tab, and click change. In Computer name change window, select the option for member of Workgroup, rather than domain.




as all the restrictions are applied to the computer through the group policy on that domain of computers


Method 2:

Don’t remove the computer from the network, just login with the local computer administrator account and do everything on that computer with full administrative rights.


What is Local Administrator Account?


Local Computer is the default account in windows with Username as Administrator and Password which you set at the time of installation


If you don’t even know the password of the local computer administrator account password, get to know how can you hack and change the password for the default administrator account in windows or you can also try forgot-windows-password-reset-windows-password/.


After Logging In through the default administrator account all the restrictions imposed will be gone.

well, we can do this by useing the tool posted above, or we can do this by useing cmd, command prompt (cmd) can be used for many things when stuff like this happen.
go to run, type cmd and enter
enter the following command:
net user daughter /del
rename “daughter” with your daughter’s username

some girls tend to change their name with special characters, example: r4nd0m g1rL,
if your daughter has done so, do the following :
go to run type cmd and enter.
type in the following command:
net user

right click and select mark, highlight your daughter(s) username and right click again.

type in the following command:
net user (right click and select paste, control+v does not work) /del

one- my “my computer” is not on desktop, it’s in start menu.
two- when i right click it and click properties it says the same thing… restrictions on this computer blah blah blah.
three- it’s my personal computer in my home and not linked to any group or domain.
four- could it be because of some virus?
