Specs: Windows Vista, AMD Phenom 9150e/4.0GB
This morning when I woke my computer up, I tried to log in to my user profile and my profile was recognized and my profile couldn't be loaded. Unfortunately, I am the Administrator as well. I don't recall ever setting up the administrator profile with a password, although now one is required.

I've set up a new administrator profile, but can not copy my files from the old to the new user profile. I am really frustrated. Any advice that works will be greatly appreciated.

web search taking ownership of files. you would need to do this first before you can copy your files over to the new account.

"This morning when I woke my computer up,"
First off, that feature is basically meant for laptops.

Are you saying when you made your new administrator account that you couldn't delete the password on the old account?

That is what happens when you run computers as an admin. It gets hacked. Always use a system at the lowest level permission. A limited user is more secure.


Might try a system restore point from safe mode boot. I think you can do a restore point from DVD too.
