Vista handles the Built-in Administrator account differently from what you
saw in XP.
In XP, anytime you boot to Safe Mode, the Built-in Administrator account is
always shown on the login screen.
In Vista, anytime you boot to Safe Mode, the Built-in Administrator account
is only shown IF there are no other Administrator accounts on the system.
What you are seeing indicates that the account shown on the Safe Mode login
screen IS an Administrator account.
When you login to Safe Mode with your Brothers account, go to Control Panel
/ User Accounts. Look at the account you are logged in with. Does it show:
Also, do you have a Vista Installation Disk?
Let me know.
