  • Hi Mez12, are you looking for this ? Login to the disable Administrator using Safe Mode

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Start-your-computer-in-safe-mode

    If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

    Login to the Administrator try to change Your User Account Type to Administrator.
    Hope you find the info useful
