    Several weeks ago, at someones suggestion, I changed my Administrators
    Account to a Standard User Account.This was as a result of the topic "Why use
    a standard user account instead of an administrators account. I must have
    changed something as a result. I'm regretting this. Now, when I want to
    make any changes a window appears, Machine Account, and asks for a
    Password. I never set up this account and do not have a password. When I
    check my user accounts all that is shown is a Standard Account. The
    Administrators Account is no longer listed. I was told this Asp Account is
    blocking my Administrators Account. My Administrators Account was set up
    without any password.

    Is there a remedy without reinstalling Vista?
