Do you have a Vista installation DVD?
If you do, go to the following website and follow the instructions in Option
2. This allow you to enable the Built-in Administrator account on the
Welcome screen. You can use this account to change or delete the password to
the other admin account.
What do I do: I can no longer log in or elevate to an administrator account:
After you get everything fixed, go to Start and type: cmd.exe Right
click the cmd.exe file and select the Run As Administrator option. In the
command window, type the following:
net user administrator /active:no
And press Enter.
This will hgide the built-in administrator account for safe keeping.
