The workaround I linked to uses the icon / link at the bottom left corner of the sign-in screen, meaning you bypass the sign-in. By booting to the Repair CD and navigating to the Command Prompt, you will trade the "Screen Magnifier" exec file for the "Open CMD Prompt" exec file. Then when you reboot, instead of signing in, you click the icon at the bottom left of the screen and select the "Screen Magnifier" from the menu. Your Command Promtp will open allowing you to enable the Default Administrator account. After a reboot, you are able to sign in to the Administrator Account and fix your issue.

Thank you for your kind words! Please feel free to pass this on to anyone you wish, anytime.

BTW, the original Vista tutorial was written by my esteemed friend and fellow Guru, Dinesh. Expect to see an updated tutorial for Windows 7 very soon.

Cheers!

administrator problem

I had the same problem and was able to fix it.

1.) Login into whichever user you can.
2.) run cmd
3.) type "runas /user:<type useradmin name> cmd
4.) if you hid the user using regedit then run regedit in the new command window and undo any changes
