Thanks guys!
But it seems the extension:EditUser is removed from download. I couldn't find anywhere to download it anymore. Could you please provide me with a link to download?
As for the extension:Piggyback, I couldn't find any instructions. Are there any instructions somewhere available?
Thanks again,
Ross Xu

Special:Piggyback could be used as an alternative. It lets you log in
as though you were another user, so you can do anything they could do,
including editing of preferences.

The code is here:
