    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

    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.

    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?
