I do not have install privileges on my machine.

Another user who has admin privileges installed it, but told the system to use Windows Authentication for the sign on.

Is there a way they can change the User Instances from one Windows Authentication to another without having to reinstall?


Yes. Someone who has administrative rights (aka admin rights) to the SQL instance can change this by using SQL Server Management Studio.
