    messed it up badly. The Laptop is a intel celeron 32-bit vista home.

    he double clicks on lets say set up parental controls or anything tha
    needs admin controls it either says access denied or doesn't respond.
    he also delete the recovery vista drive. Is there anything he can d
    other than buy all new disks and start new

    "Messed it up badly..." is a generic phrase which doesn't tell us exactly
    what was done to this laptop. Is there an administrator account in User
    Accounts? Is administrator account password protected? Can programs be Run As
    Administrator? Exactly what damage to the Vista OS has been done? Perhaps big
    brother should have a sit down with little brother and get some answers.
    Maybe little brother should buy big brother a new Vista recovery disc from
