Hi mooly. I did do what you suggest before, but now it will not let me do it. It will not let me log in as the administrator, although my account is the same as the administrators account. How can I find out what the password for the admins account is. Thanks.
Hi, Do you mean the Acer Empowering programs are asking for a password or just Vista asking for an administrator account. I installed Vista 18 months ago on my Acer9300 ( free upgrade offer) so I don't have the same empowering utilities that you have. I am just going off memory from the couple of months I had XP on it and the empowering programs. Again going back to XP, the first thing it prompts "out of the box" is to burn a set of recovery discs, but these just mirror the recovery partition. Maybe emailing Acer would be worthwhile. Not that I'm any expert but is there a specific problem you have with the current installation.
