RE: Administrator Account Corrupted
From what you described it seems that some Vista OS files are corrupted.
Without administrator control you may not be able to fix them. Last resort:
migrate all of your important data files to an external drive and reinstall
Once you get your computer back to a normal state, you should consider a
good backup program such as ACRONIS.
