    vista user account login help

    I have a latop with 2 user accounts on it, i can log in on the one fine but not the administrator account, the password is 100% correct but when i enter it, the laptop just freezes for so long i have no choice but to turn the main power of and restart.I cannot unistall any programs, system restore etc , basically whatever i try it always wants the admin password to continue, then comes the hanging/freezing.I have been googling the problem and have not fixed it as yet, just wondered if anybody on here have had the same problem to which they have found a fix,thanks

    OP...
    Get a copy of ERD Commander and reset the admin password and see if that resoves it.

    ERD Commander runs from a boot-cd, it doesn't go into Windows.
    No password required :thumbsup:
