    I am unable to run a number of programs on vista - and I cannot access user
    accounts. I am quite sure that it is related to my user account setup but
    I'm not able to access it. When I try to run some programs/utilities (ie.
    Blackberry Desktop Manager, Sidebar gadget addition, user accounts) it opens
    a window briefly & then closes it right away. I have a laptop (not
    networked) and only one user - myself - which I originally granted
    administrator rights. Things worked fine for the first few months, but I am
    constantly having trouble lately.

    I'm assuming that the first thing I need to do is get into my user account
    & make sure it's setup correctly - but I can't do that cuz when I try it
    opens/closes a window & I get nowhere. I've tried right-clicking to run as
    administrator but that option isn't there. I've tried to switch user - but
    only my "theresa' account is an option (and it says I'm already logged in.

    Please help!
