administrator gone, user control on

Recommended Posts

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

I know windows key (shareware) can make a bootable iso which can reset the password.

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

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