If you're going through hell, keep going.
I did the following, but I noticed a few problems.... (it worked the last time I installed Vista)
Show Administrator on Welcome Screen in Windows Vista
start -> run = â€ control userpasswords2 â€ select administrator account, click reset password (input new pass) / Ok
start -> run = â€ regedit â€ create the key below
create â€œDWORD (32bit) Valueâ€
Value Name: Administrator
Value Data: 1
The only trouble is...the control userpasswords2 thing only brought up my own account. Plus when I created that new key, I was expecting to be added on the right-side to winlogon, instead it added itself as a new subkey on the left, which I then added the Dword etc.
What am I doing wrong...back to school it is for me, sorry!!
