I have a desktop running Vista Home. There are two users on the system. The one that is in the admin group has a corrupt profile. The second user is a standard user. I need to activate the Administrator account or elevate the standard user to the admin level. Problem is that every time I try to do either, it wants me to use the credentials for the admin user with the corrupt profile. I have a linux rescue tool that will reset the administrator password, but i don't know if this is going to do anything for me.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to remedy this problem?
