Vista Issue - Administrator problems.
Hello all.. I have been dealing with computers for several years now and considered myself tech savvy, until today..


Vista Administration Problems


I am an avid computer builder and bought an OEM vista premium 32bit OS.. Well turns out microsoft doesn't support me and wants me to pay a 59$ technical fee in order to answer my question.. So I am back from the 30minute waiting/call from an outsourced village worker in speak'engnot..

I guess I will get to my problem..


I recently restored my OS due to a faulty windows update(who would imagine such things) to only be greeted by a BLANK desktop and a "new" guest pass to my PC..

This guest pass not only doesn't let me view my contents from my admin folder, but every single button to even grant me access to an admin feature, is broken.. The buttons just do not work..

I have tried the "net user administrator /active: yes" and it just says failed.


Have also tried to run in safe mode to manually create a admin account by, cmd/ "control userpasswords2". This didnt work either. Nor did it let me create a standard account..


Now I am at the point where I just want my files back.. I am willing to do just about anything to acheieve this. Even a reformat..

I just don't know how I would go about doing that. Create a separate partition?

Any feedback would be appreciated.
