    I disabled the Administrator account, even though it says you can't, I was
    trying to get rid of the log on, I also got rid of the guest account and now
    when I restarted the computer it Will Not Allow Me To Log On. It says the
    administrator account has been disabled. I can not get by the log in, even if
    I try safe mode and recovery and last known good configuration. Brand new
    computer and I need Help, I am stuck at the log on screen.

    Great info but, in safe mode it takes me to the log on screen and the
    Administrator account is disabled so I can not log in. Opion two and three I
    think require me to be able to log in, in order to make the changes. Even
    though Vista info says that you can't disable the Administrator account I
    did, and it tells me this on the log in, the account has been disabled. Are
    there any keys that I may hit on start up that allow me to get by the log on
    screen?

    Read the instructions on that website carefully. The procedures outlined
    there require that you boot form a Vista installation disk. Once that
    procedure is complete, you boot to normal mode in Vista and the account
    named Administrator will be available.

    Ronnie:

    I tried option three but I can't get anywhere. First question, what is the
    start orb, is it the button on the screen at the bottom left after you log
    in? If so I can't log in to any account, and the Vista disk won't boot? So if
    I can't log on under any account, how do I see a user name? If I try safe
    mode or repair your computer, last know good config, they all take me back to
    the log on screen. How do I get past that?
