Vista was designed to enable the full token administrator account
and make it available in safe mode whenever the last of the other
administrator accounts is removed or demoted.
Unfortunately, it is still possible for a user to inadvertantly shift the
administrator privilege to the ASP.NET account and remove or
demote all the others - leaving them with an administrator account
they can't log into.
Locked your keys in the car again eh?
No doubt there are "slim jim" programs out there - or at least a
'coathanger' program bent just right.
....or as Malke would be likely (and rightly) to suggest - a spare set
of keys in the form of another administrator account just in case.
