    Serious Help Needed plz!

    ok first of all sorry to use this topic but i saw way too many threads so I figured i might get help sooner from you guys here... I had been using the true admin account to do my everyday work (now i know i shouldn't have) also had my old admin account (both password protected) and lastnight i decided to change my SID using the NewSid program just for kicks and giggles.. the first time around it just sat there for a couple hours not managing anything but to open a new account.. the ASP.net machine account... since i had no idea what it was or what it did i chose to delete it (again, now i know i shouldn't have).. then i tried the NewSid again, only this time it worked.. it did what it was supposed to change registries and hives, and rebooted the system.. only to find out I only had my guest account, my admin and regular account were not showing up at all just the guest one is showing up yet my hard drive is still intact, and I can still see my admin and regular account folders.. just cant access them.. any help is highly appreciated, thanks for your time!

    Hello Alex. Since you were messing with the Registry, pop in your Vista Install disk, and hit repair. Should fix you up.

    And next time, create an account to use, not the built in!

    Hey there Bob (kinda always wanted to say that!) is there any other way to fix this? I do not own a vista install disk, I dont really know if it came with my laptop. My brother bought it in the US and brought it to Mexico where i'm staying atm without anything but the laptop, i'll have to ask him.

    Interesting... I cannot think of another way to do it. If you can get on another computer, you can download a Vista disk, as long as you have legally purchased the software.

    Yeah its not, its kind of a joke. I have been using this username for about 10 years.

    Anyways, as long as you own the code, you can look on a torrent site for the download, (such as bittorrent). Just search the internet, and be careful which one your download.
