    My computer doesn't have an administrator account. I tried to add one in the registry, but got the "can't create value: error to writing registry". I also tried to change the permission, but got the "Unable to save permission changes on userlist. Access is denied." Can anyone help me? Thanks.:confused:

    Administrator Account

    Your computer might have one that isn't visible. When you get to the logon screen (where you choose which user), hit control-alt-delete twice. Select the user name line and type Administrator. Leave the password blank and attempt to sign in.
