Changing Limited User Account
Posted on 2011-03-25
I have a pc running Vista Home Premium with two user accounts, one is an administrator account which I can't access as it will not start when I click on the login screen and the other is a limited account that I can access normally.
I can't change the limited account to an admin one as although I get asked for the administrator account password when I attempt it nothing happens, probably due to the admin account corruption.
Currently I have the hard drive in another computer while I backup the user data. Is there a way of converting the limited account to an admin one while I have the drive out or would the simplest thing be to use something like the UBCD4WIN to create a new admin account when I return the hard drive to the original pc?
