    This will not work. Read carefully, he has lost his administrator password. He is logging into a limited account. Fischer, please use the link that has been provided in the post by "Bill the adult".

    Thats the correct way of getting your administrator account back. Its a back door entry into windows user management and thankfully it has not been plugged yet.

    I realized my error just after I sent my post, for which I apologize.

    Don't forget to reinstall any service packs & critical updates afterwards.
