There are many online solution you can find but I would suggest you try to remove password by using laptop in safe mode or if you already have access of the then remove it from control panel >> user accounts.

    How do you mean this? Do you want to be able to login and work as an admin? Elcomsoft has a neat tool call Elcomsoft System Recovery that help you reset the existing password.

    Open command prompt as Run as administrator (all programs > start menu > accessories), click Yes, if it asks, now type the following command,
    for disable : net user administrator /active:no
    for deletion : net user administrator /delete

    Can you specify exactly what restrictions you are hoping to remove? You don't mention a password issue, just a desire to remove some unamed restrictions....different scenarios could require different solutions.

    I have an issue with an inability to make any changes to the PC.
    Just an example: When I try to run a program such as PC Matic, I get the window that asks if I want to allow it to make changes on the hard drive it instructs me to type an administrative password and click yes. The problem is, there is no place to type in the pass word and the YES box doesn't high-lite. So all that can be done is to click NO. Opening the CMD box does not allow me to sign on as admin either. I get the same window asking to allow change but no way to log on as admin. Hope this helps to answer the question. Thanks

    What environment is there ! is it a client pc connected with others. As you wrote every time it asks for permission, as far as my knowledge, a user control box appears and click yes to continue the same. If not your admin will help you to resolve this issue, without proper admin rights you can not do admin related tasks/ change system settings, as you mentioned even command prompt/ cmd could not open with "Run As Administrator".

    To back up a bit, this is a home PC on a home network. When I set it up originally it was basically set so whoever had access to it could make whatever changes needed to be made. Since there are only two of us who have any access to the network that's not an issue. Long story short, not sure what happened.

    I am not sure what I changed on my PC. I have an HP Pavilion G Series with Windows 7. When I bring up programs from my email and start them on IE browser, they open just fine, but if I click on a link to take me to a different place on the landing page (I will use Overstock.com for ex), I get a message that says "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions on this computer. Please contact your System Administrator. That is me because this is a home computer. I am not the most PC Savvy person in the world, so if someone could explain to me in plain English the process to undo this, that would be hugely helpful. Thanks!!

    @Deanfrazee, First of all, you must run an anti virus to make sure that if this happens due to virus activity. If you don't have install a good antivirus, you can try with MWAV (a free antivirus) and try the same.

    @Deanfrazee: What browser are you using? I had issues with some sites but only when using Firefox, the others like IE,Edge and Chrome all worked fine. It has to do with security settings. Try another browser and see if the same thing happens. A lot of browsers are tightening security lately and some sites need to make changes on their end before it will pass the new checks being put in place by the browsers.
