I got computer back from a tech friend.
2 days later my Administrator Password Expired in my default homegroup (1)
I did not make another password .

*I can not do anything without the Administrator pop up asking for password. I can not download,change settings,update Adobe Flash Player,Adobe Reader, well, any of the Adobe updates. nothing.

*I THEN- Created another Homegroup (2) to enable me to work on my computer THINKING I would be able to download in this Homegroup(2).

*NO-I STILL CAN NOT download or change settings Administrator homegroup(1) still ask for password.
*Ihave 2 Homegroups now(Administrator default Homegroup(1) )
(Homegroup (2) )

WHAT this did was enable me into my homegroup(2) without using a password. STILL HAVING THE ORIGINAL DEFAULT HOMEGROUP (1)asking for A PASSWORD.

*NOW IF I WERE TO (cancel this homegroup(2) completly)leaving me with just the original default Administrator Account (1) I think if I were to use the same procedure "HOW TO DELETE PASSWORD IN ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT" I then would have full control over account??I WILL TRY THIS EXCEPT-question

QUESTION--How do I cancel out my homegroup(2) completly??? so I will be left with my original default Administator account(1) which ask for password for downloading .
