    Can't access or activate my Administrator Account


    I have Windows Home Premium, 32 bit running on my computer. Windows
    came loaded with my computer with a CD. It is not an original Windows
    Vista CD however, like ones bought seperately. (I know this is needed
    for some of the fixes I read)
    I have no idea why this happened, but I can not access my Admin Acc
    through either regular or safe mode. It does not show up in my 'user
    accounts' or 'switch user'. I had to create a temp account in Safe
    Mode, in order to get anywhere. This account is very limited, will not
    let me access 'Command Prompt', 'Explore' from the Start button and
    such.
    I did find my Admin Acc by way of C drive then changing permissions. I
    have tried pages of relevant posts, but can't seem to get anywhere. As
    yet I have not attempted to give Admin rights to this temp account, as
    I'm afraid of loosing my real Admin Account.
    Any help and suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mia

    Logon to Vista using your usual account.
    Launch the cmd prompt - Make sure you select, 'Run as administrator'
    write this : "Net user administrator /active:yes" and press enter.(Dont
    Write this ")
    Switch User, or logoff
