Go into the system via safe mode (F8) on startup and select 'Safe Mode'. When in the system go to your account and delete it and enter a new one. Restart pc.

    If you don't want to do that then go to this site and download the SIW free programme.

    Takes secondes to install, then look down left side for secrets, click it and all passwords should show up.

    There's no spyware or malware in it, so don't worry about loading it.

An administrator account can't be created directly from command line. We first need to create a user account and then add the user to the administrators group.

System error 5 has occurred.
Access is denied.

Administrators password


if you have another user account with administrator access you can either remove the password i the user account field or you can try accessing the files of that particular user account and transfer it and just erase the user account and create a new one. vista does not have any backdoor to access using the disk unlike xp
