Hi, i was so anxious to see how Vista Ultimate

works that i have locked myself out as administrator and cant get it back.

I went to management and to usergroups, user control...played with all sort of opions and now i "managed" my computer very well :(

I m set now as standaard user and the user control is on, so the computer doesnt allow me to go back to adminitrator,

i cant make any update or download because i need the adminitrator to allow so.

I m totally stucked now, going back to system restore doest work:needs the approval of the adminitrator too.

In Holland the Vista is new, no one has the experience to help me out.

Do i need to buy another Vista, when i install another version, would that delete my documents and so on?

The administrator had no password set, so in the windows that pop up, i also cant put a pasword to log in.

I did a good job, when i try to put the command "run as administrator" i get the message that the computer

doesnt recongize the word RUN, so that doesnt work either.

Is Vista unlockable???

Anyone who has been there??

Thanks, Ultimately stupid Deirdre

Reboot in safe mode and fix or change whatever you like - while logged in as admin.

While you're there, make another admin account. :)
