Ronnie thank you for the reply, unfortunately there are two accounts with
admin privileges. There is the administrator account and the admin account
which is a user account with admin rights. Neither of which can I get a login
to, and neither of which I can seem to make any changes. The admin account is
selected as (do not display) -as my privileges won't let me uncheck it- and
the other is the regular admin account that you can only see by changing the
0 to a 1 in regedit. -Which I also get a permission error for- and yes I do
have my installation DVD, it is vista ultimate. Thank you again.
