Windows 7: I lost admin password and couldn't fix, now both gone

Vista Spk 2 x64 Home Premium/Windows 7 Home premium

Please do not delete this thread. I may need it for help. If you care, read about this hotfix. It states right on Microsofts page that it causes memory leaks and BSOD. KB981889. The other Hotfix they downloaded that installed WOW is what caused me to loose all of my SQL server files. So what ever you think, It is not me that has caused these problems. The only people who have logged onto this system has been microsoft and the one tech. The person who logged into my Lasspass was an employee. I called him. He did it from his computer because he was doing research work for me. I don't keep bank passwords and things like that in there.

Thanks for dropping me with so many unanswered questions and the fear of shutting down my computer due to what Microsoft just downloaded. Sleep well.

Working with Microsoft

Well, I had a VP with Microsoft on the phone with me today. In a half hour he un bricked my hard drive. Gave me the steps to do it on my desktop computer and I am almost completely back to normal. Maybe I'll share the tricks with you. Sure fixed a lot of stuff quickly. No scans involved. No take ownership and no three weeks of never getting a solid answer from you. And he didn't ask for snippits! He just did it and he's calling me back tomorrow to finish.

Lost Setup admin password.
I bought a laptop on ebay. I can not get into BIOS because it asks for a setup admin password, which I do not know. It is a Dell Vostro 3700. The seller did not know the previous owner, therefore no idea what the password is. Can anyone help me work around this? Thanks, Bill

admin user lost some admin rights
I can't delete a file from the desktop. When I try, it says to get the rights from the specified admin user (which I'm logged on). The strange thing is that I still can create other users from this account (including admins). Any suggestion on what to do?
