How Do I Remove A User From My Computer?

My boyfriend set up my computer when I first bought it years ago. We have now broken up but he listed himself as the admin for my computer. I went to add a program to my computer and it will not let me unless he puts in his password.  How can I remove him from having admin rights and add my user as one?

Hi Patricia,
 
In order to delete the user with admin rights from the computer, the steps are as follows
 
1 Go to All Programs from the Start Menu and go to Accessories.
2 Right click on Command Prompt and choose Run as admin.
3. In the opened command prompt, type net user administrator/active:no ( for disabling the admin account) and net user administrator [/DELETE] to remove the admin user.
 
Regards,
