comment A computer guru had free access to my computer, am I safe?
@BenBrocka I hope that was sarcasm, but anyway, is it even possible to do anything harmful when the user is standard and has a white list of allowed programs?

@ChrisF It's just that I don't know the guy and I'm fearing that he wants to "show of his skills" in a manner that isn't good for me... I'm not saying it is infected by anything, but some people can't resist installing a keylogger or similar if they have the chance, you can only know if you know the person.

@MarkAllen Emm, I think I've skipped out on something here, because to me that didn't make much sense xD

@MarkAllen Well, that's when you should consider if your application has too much bad code, or if the application is really too slow for production. Good one you got there!

@grawity Well, that one I think is a good feature.. Because you have to use this special syntax, and thus you can do very dynamic things. For a seasoned programmer, this shouldn't be good feature, because good programming habits will not need such functionality, but for new programmers this is an easy way to get to their goal as fast as possible. After all, PHP is made to be extremely easy to make simple scripts, but still include the good programmers. (And one can of course discuss how well they do the latter...)

@grawity Actually PHP was the first language I learned, and you are completely correct, there is a lot of (please pardon me, but this is actually right from the soul) crap in PHP. So I'm actually considering using Django instead, but I suppose it's more "okay" since that's what I've "grown up with"..

I didn't even know that variables could have spaces! This is the most ridiculous property of a language I've seen until now. I'm actually just using this to change some properties on a server, so I just want it to work as fast as possible..

comment How to log in without any users (Administrator password) in Windows 8
I tried doing this, but it required admin rights of course.. I reverted to an image of Win7, and did a fresh upgrade to Win8. Advice to others reading this: NEVER disconnect from the domain unless you have set up another account. You CANNOT login with a Microsoft account (like I thought) if you haven't set it up on beforehand. You can only do this if it's the first time you do a fresh install..

I didn't think of that. I don't know what you mean by Windows 8 DVD? I made a DVD with the UpgradeHelper.exe (or similar), but it only allows me to do an upgrade. However, since I have a dual-boot setup, I can access all the features you are talking about there..

Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it! I did what you said with Hiren's Boot CD, but it was too late. After trying many external programs to reset the Administrator password (hybrid Linux distros), I finally found one that did not work AT ALL. It made the user accounts corrupt, and now nothing works as it should work anymore. I'll have to try reinstalling and reupgrading.. But again, thanks for your time!

If it doesn't work now, I'll revert to the Win7 image, and do an upgrade again. Do you know if I will be able to do this, or if I have to buy the upgrade again?

No, don't! I had Windows 7 on the C: partition. I then installed Windows 8 on a VHD from TechNet. I yesterday, I upgraded Windows 7 to Windows 8, and this is where the Admin problem lies. I just happen to have Windows 8 still, because the Windows 8 upgrade didn't delete the VHD which is located at C:\Windows 8.vhd

I tried selecting: "Commandpromt" in the boot-menu, but it required me to log in as one of the accounts on the computer, which is only the Administrator which I don't know the password on... I have no other accounts on it. I thought you could make a new account just by trying to log in with a Microsoft ID.. (Like one could in the TechNet edition.)

I appreciate your help, but when I insert the upgrade DVD, it doesn't give me any options except for upgrading. (When I run it on my other dual-booted OS. It is installed on a VHD, so I cannot access the C drive of my trouble OS...)

Aha, so even though it wants me to log in as an administrator, I have to enable it first. Thanks! I'll try that tomorrow! The time is 2 AM here, don't think I can keep my eyes up any longer. (Been struggling for hours..)
