    I have upgraded from XP Pro to Vista Ultimate and when the upgrade was
    performed I was logged into XP as the local administrator. After the upgrade
    the local administrator account is disabled and the one other user that was
    also an administrator does not have admin rights.

    I can not do anything that requires administrator rights, can not even
    enable the administrator account.

    If there are no other administrator accounts try logging on in safe mode
    with the "administrator" account. Once you are logged on create another
    account with administrator privileges.
