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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
