Try run the command prompt as Administrator.
From your Windows menu, right click on "Command Prompt" and select "Run as Administrator"

It works for me

mario221, you have wasted half of your time repeating the same thing all over again about contacting the admin to gain access. Don't you see the problem that people are facing? It is obviously clear that they are the admin but they can't log in as an admin somehow. You were not helping at all.

I currently have that problem. I have tried system reg "regedit" to change the dword but to no avail. I have tried net user administrator /active:yes, system boot disk program stuff, almost everything.

My last option is to reinstall my vista. But I still have faith that this can be solve.
yes u r rite

This may be a little too late, but: Restart your computer on SAFE MODE with command , at the first screen, you won't be able to see any user accounts, but just click on the right side of the screen and then the three finger salute! ALT+CTRL+DEL, at this point you have a logon screen displyed and can choose administrator and your password... Good luck man!
