Windows 7: User account corrupted, administrator account not accessible

09 May 2012   #11

Windows 7 Professional
Repair/Install won't work either

Because you have to be logged in to do a repair install.

I did, however, find a workable solution: Pay someone with a good grasp of Linux to fix the problem I don't know what he did, but apparently Linux offers repair tools that Windows doesn't, and that did the trick.

So this is just to say my problem was fixable, but not with the standard Windows 7 tools at my disposal coupled with my inexperience.

Thanks to everybody who tried to help, I appreciate your time.

Delighted to hear your problem has been solved.

Time for us to brush up our knowledge of Linux perhaps? :)

Win 7 Home Premium/64bit/dual core

Thank you for the reply, but, I don't no anyone with the knowledge of Linux and I can't afford to do that. I am glad that you are up and running again though. I have tried everything that I have read here for 3 wks now and it seems that nothing works for me. I am really not knowledgeable enough to mess around in the registry. I am thouroughly frustrated with this mess.
I can't even use my Administrator's acct to fix anything. Any other idea? Appreciate the help and patience with a novice. :)

Not accessible through a standard user account?
I occasionally come across some functions that I can't access through my standard user account. The latest one is Start/Default Programs/Set program access and computer defaults. It tells me I do not have permission, no opportunity to elevate rights, so I had to log into the admin account. I...

the "run as administrator" option? If you're the administrator, aren't all programs "run as administrator" by default? The reason I ask is that I'm trying to delete something via Spybot, and a message appeared on the screen saying I need to run the program as an adminstrator in order to perform...
