Administrator Password - Windows Vista
I was setting up a standard account; and activated the password required
feature while in the standard account - not the administrator; and now I
cannot get into the administrator account. I tried administrator and "no
passowrd" but a message keeps coming up that I need to log in for the first
time... which I can't do without a pasword. Vista obviously has quite a few
bugs to work out, no?

Please help.

RE: Administrator Password - Windows Vista
Uh, that Administrator account isn't active (unless you activated it), so
that might be why you can't log on to it. Though the message you say you're
getting doesn't ring a bell. If you have made special alterations to the
standard Vista configuration and are having trouble you really need to post
exactly what you've done (and things like which version of Vista you're
running, etc.) before people will be able to help you. But THE built-in
"Administrator" account does NOT normally have a password. But it also cannot
normally be used. It only becomes activated, by default, when the system has
suffered a serious error and has been booted into Safe Mode.
