Lost Admin And asking for .Net Machine Account!
Hello there, i use vista Ultimate, for some reason i am unable to gain my admin account back, and everytime i try to run certain tasks it asks me for asp.net machine account password??

I think i screwed up somewhere whilst trying to enable my admin rights. Now i cannot see the admin account when i log off so i can log on to the admin account, all i get is a standard user account which is not in the admin domain.

Also when i go to control panel>accounts i cannot not even have the right to change the standard user back to the admin domain as it asks me for the asp.net machine account password. What the hell is that?

Ahhhh help driving me nuts!

Hi Danbee80,

If you mean the administrator account is not visible, but you know the password of it I can help you.
Some time I read an article on the Sunbelt Vistanews community.
To regain the administrator account do the following:
  • Restart the computer and press F8 to invoke the boot menu options.
  • Select "Save mode with Networking".
  • Log on with an administrative account (such as the one you created when you installed or set up Vista).
  • Click Start and type "cmd" in the Run box.
  • At the command prompt, type "net user administrator /active".
  • Close the window and reboot.
Hope this helps.

My PC was delivered with Home Premium.
After I installed Vista, I made the admin account visible.
The default password is empty, so if you've never used it, try this.
Then, after updating to Ultimate the account was invisible again.
