Default No admin account in pre-RC1 5536


Why is the Admin account blocked. Having screwed up video drivers, I tried to
roll back (grayed out), and then boot to safe mode only to find that the
admin account was disabled

Right click the Windows (Start) icon and go to Properties. Start
Menu/Customize. Make sure that "System Administrative Tools"
is checked to display.
Go to it and click Computer Management. Then double-click Local Users &
groups.
Right-click Administrator in "Users" - Properties, and uncheck the disabled
line. Do NOT apply a password whilst in that module!
If you want Administrator to show on your regular Welcome screen then do the
following:

Show Admin on Vista Welcome Screen

Show Administrator on Welcome Screen in Windows Vista

start -> run = ” control userpasswords2 ” select administrator account,
click reset password (input new pass) / Ok

start -> run = ” regedit ” create the key below

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserLis t

create “DWORD (32bit) Value”
Value Name: Administrator
Value Data: 1
