Blocked by Admin.

I'm trying to do a system restore but everything is disable by admin. The admin is my uncle but any changes or updates needs his permission. We don't talk anymore so now I'm kinda shit out of luck. Can anybody help me just to get me back to a new computer without him and get back all my access. Please help. The computer is an Hp pavilion Dv6. Model dv6-2170 us.

Hello Tbarajas, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You have really only have two options below since we cannot/will not be able to help you to override your uncle's security measures.
  1. Take it back to your uncle.
  2. Purchase Windows 7, and do a clean install of Windows 7 to start over.
Hope this helps some.

So I can buy a new version of windows and reinstall and it will be back to new? Or is buying the system restore discs from Hp an option too? Or can I buy the new windows 8 to be able to work as well?

Yes, you could use the HP restore discs to set it back to factory condition.

Yes you could buy win8 and install that - I don't recommend windows 8 at all.

Upgrade version will be fine.

I don't know how much they cost, though.

Thta's a good point.

If you have a machine which had win7 pre installed - there will be a product key on it somewhwere. Maybe under the battery.

If you have that - you don't need to buy it again.

You just need to get the installation .iso.

It is in the tutorial Liitlejay linked to.
