Well my problem is that for some reason i cannot log into my profile which is the Administrator profile, i can logon to my dads profile fine and everything is working rite except for i cannot do things that require admin permission even when i type in my password. When i Type in My password it says "the user profile Service service failed the logon, user profile cannot be loaded" then i it logs me out. Also whenever i try to do anything that requires permission from Admin and i type my password in i get some error message saying the name is wroung or somthing so i cant even add or remove profiles. Plz someone help me!

Hello mac345,

The administrator account is disabled by default in windows vista see http://support.micro...kb/555910/en-us on how to enable it.

That being said I do not recommend using the administrator account on a daily basis. The administrator account in vista is given higher perditions then a administer user. For example UAC is turned off. I would recommend creating another account with administrator permissions and using that account if you use this system on a day to day basis.
