enable Administrator in VISTA HOME BASIC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,
    just got a new VAIO, with VISTA HOME BASIC preisntalled. I have experience with VISTA for past 4-5 months now, but the "ultimate" betas only. in which u just login with the First user u make, which is an Admin by default & then enable ADMINISTRATOR from the user control snap-in. But in VISTA HOME BASIC the snap-in doesn't load & says to use user account Icon from control panel. I have tried my whole knowledge & even googled alot but all methods point to the same above way i use for ultimate, but since there is no "USERs & groups" section in the computer management, how am i supposed to enable administrator a/c so i can login. Pls gurus, help me out, I need a clue badly.
