    Hi guys,

    I just got a windows server 2008 and setup a few websites on it, after that. I renamed the default administrator account, but realized, I had been locked out of sql server and other major services and the other newly setup admin accounts did not have the privileges, so I tried to rename it back, but got an error saying the administrator's account already exists.

    Also the newly named account does not work with the new password and as said above cant rename it to the default

    Please advise, what do I do ?

    Its driving me mad

    many thanks

    Ehi
