Need some help with an upgrade.

#1
I upgraded a "work" computer to Vista Business. There were two accounts on the XP "User" & "Administrator". The Vista only shows "User".. However the "Administrator" account is the one that was used. I need to know how if possible to recover everything from the Administrator account such as all the documents. I do have back up of the Administrator.. I'm looking for the quicker fix ;)

Not sure about Business but on Ultimate the administrator account is disabled by default. You need to go into Local Security Policy (secpol.msc) and enable administrator.

If you have an account that is part of the administrator's group you should be able to find your folder and transfer your files. But if not then right click my computer icon , manage and go to the user and groups and enable the account as AZ said.

Why not.

Btw, since I am not drinking anything but wine/champagne anymore (and that too, not for a few months from now), I think the savings on the cost of a beer can be applied to the plane ticket to bump me up to first class :cool:

I have nothing to do with your discussion and understand nothing about Vista but I could use a beer too... can you deliver one to Buenos Aires, Argentina? :)
I am new on this forum and find it amazing that you are all so nice and helpful to each other. Cheers for that!

You used up your "useless posts" allowance a long long time ago. Now anyways, about this free beer. Whats a ticket across the country cost these days? 400 - 500 bucks? :p
