Ok. See you tomorrow with the results of the FRST64. Been at this for hours and hours, and now, I have to go back to find out how to get back into system administrator because, that is where I saved the wmic file.
Will stop and take that deep breath now. Tomorrow then?
Have a good evening

Forward: Went to the “repair computer” and used the prompt as suggested; it opened in:
Administrator: X:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe
Can you tell me how to re-hide the SYSTEM administrator account?
I guess I'd assumed you used the windows installation disk to boot into the command prompt because I couldn't figure out any other reason that you'd be in the X:\ drive.

Thanks for showing up "Think Tank". Vista King has been going it alone for a while now.
I can only get into elevated CMD by safe mode.
By the way "Vista King". which prompt should I use use for re-hidding administrator account?
Remove what disk "Think Tank", and which Prompt for wmic useraccount get /value?
If you can only get into the elevated prompt via safe mode, and you're not using a windows disk, then that's the one that you'll be entering the wmic useraccount get /value command for. I hope that's clear.

Also, Vista King, I don't mean to step on your toes. I'm new to this forum and I might not know if there's unspoken etiquette that I should be following. I don't mean to nullify anybody's efforts - I just have an idea that I really don't know if it will work but I think so, and I love helping people. I see you around the forum and I commend you for the effort you take to to help.

Access Denied

Good morning everyone. Welcome "LayBack Bear"
Did something wrong. Can't find my last post. Here it is again.

Unsure if these logs are complete. Ran FRST64 from the desktop in "Safe Mode". Ran CMD as administrator "within" the local administrator account. Double clicked FRST64 and got this error: Unable to create folder: C:\FRST\HIVES. The FRST64 logs still popped up. Copied, pasted, and saved the logs to USB drive. Funny how these logs and some other files can be cut, copied, pasted, and transferred to USB but, no documents, pictures, or favorites can be moved from the computer. Access Denied.
Here are the logs I received:

I'll have you create a new account. If the trouble happens in the new admin account, I'll know to go a different direction. So being in Safe mode, go to that elevated command prompt again, (the same one you did the wmic command in) and type this:
Quote:
net user test /add
net localgroup administrators test /add
Once you're done, see if you can log into this Test account without having to be in Safe Mode.

Test account creation was successful, but, no elevated administrative access, or, anything executable. Unable to change UAC.

Just thought of something; maybe we are going about this thing all wrong.
The C:\ drive is full; maybe that's why there's “no access” if that is the case, what should I do about it, and what space am I using now? The computer is running like a champ besides access to the C: drive. Something ate all of my 750 gigs in 2 months; if I could get administrator access, I can run the elevated virus checks. Think some files I restored from a backup may be duplicating themselves as brand new files from my "terabyte".
"Question is": If the c: drive is full, could that cause "no access" to it?

Decided to just reformat the C:\ disk drive, but, still, "Access Denied".
