Thanks theinfluencer.
I don't have an admim password. When I boot it boots straight into the guest account. If I try to open user accounts to make a change a window opens and ask for admin password but there no place to put one. It also says do you want this app to make changes to your computer, there is a yes and a no button the yes button is greyed out.
