    Hello

    I have Vista Business installed on my laptop. I do not have the administrator account on my logonscreen, not even if I press ctrl-alt-del twice.

    During installation I also did not have to set up an admin account, but when I needed the rescue option of the Vista DVD it asked me for the admin password.

    Anyone have the solution to get the admin account on the logonscreen without making a new account for the admin (as I said I did not have to set up an admin account/password during installation)

    I cannot use the administrator password if I do not have an administrator account in the logon screen...

    I believe the local admin account on Vista installs with a blank password.

    However, be aware that by default:
    •The built-in administrator account is disabled.
    •The built-in administrator account cannot log on to the computer in safe mode.
