I am having real problems trying to resolve this problem.
My profile/user account is the administrator, my wives is a standard account.
While trying to solve via standard account, by using your tips, it is stopping me from actioning as it wants admin password, which I type, then does not proceed any further.
I cannot delete my account & I also have tried & failed via cmd to disable admin account.
This is driving me nuts, & I just want smoeone to tell me how to get access back for my account
Welcome to Vista Forums.
Are you able to boot into Safe Mode to enable the built-in Administrator account? From that account try Option One again.
Safe mode?? Any further info, excuse my apparent techno dyslexia......
Plus I noticed your advice to LRaul. It still will not allow change of name, add bak, remove bak. Still keeps saying name already exists no matter what you try & change 1st.
Any suggestions on a rename that it will allow?
I have the original install disk, again though, I am administator, so it will not allow any functions to run as my user is not accessible.
I appreciate all your advice,but would I just be better just trying to ring microsoft & try, try & sort over the phone?
