    1.First of all scan your system - we've make sure you don't have som
    viruses - because you've lost most administrative previlliges (and mayb
    much more) I sugest to burn live CD with antivir->'Index o
    2.If antivir nothing find download Process Monitor 'Process Monitor
    run it;try do something which required administrative previlliges an
    you have trouble with it - of course it fails but now only going on t
    allow Process Monitor to see with that you have trouble; after save lo
    as a *.PML file pack it to *.zip and upload it on 'Speedy Share - uploa
    your files here' (http://www.speedyshare.com/) because file will be t
    big to attache here normall

    Well, you can take some consolation from the fact that your replies to
    this thread (3 nearly-identical inside of 6 minutes) are working.

    Hello, Yeah I hope that it will work but another problem... I can't run
    Command Promt as Administrator. I am like a guest and I tried that
    Com.Pro. for both users it says access denied, Basically all where you
    need premission of administrator there is denied. I'm just don't know
    what to do.

    Yes I know I very exactly remember you don't have access to *cmd.exe*
    and many others -> thus I told you turn on built-in Administrator
    account remotly (not locally!)
    You have to boot DVD Vista,navigate to:

    Choose language>>repair computer>>Command prompt

    and type

    after running,click on *HKLM* hive on load *SAM *file from
    *C:\Windows\System32* as (for example) *REM_SAM* and modify how I told
    you in my previous post

    see also this thread (from post 17)
    on other example how edit registry remotly

    Probably you have only recovery DVD and recovery partition - from mos
    producers they are really unuseful in these situations -but instead DV
    Vista you can also use this special recovery disk-
    'Windows Vista Recovery Disc Download — The NeoSmart Files
    Of course you have to burn it on other computer..
    If you have computer from Dell or Fujitsu-Siemens you can use from the
    recovery disk because these producers gives full preregistered Vista

    It showed in this thread but due to technical rrors not always all
    images are displayed,so I attached image below and describe:

    1.Navigate now to *HKLM\REM_SAM\SAM\Domains\Account\Users\000001F4*

    and click *F* value in right panel,then will display second window
    (right side).When I circled red you have to change to 10

    10 -Administrator account is turned on
    11 -Administrators account is turned off
    other values returns errors during logging

    That's strange and bad :confused:. You seem have some corrupt in
    registry or system Try to use System Restore...of course by using the
    same special recovery disk
    choose language>>repair computer>>System Restore

    and let's see results..

    This has been going on for 10 days now to no avail.

    It's time to take your computer to a competent technician.
