    windows administrator problems

    Hi folks,
    I have one problem...
    Until recently I had two administration accounts, Administrator, and my personal account. I didn't know administrator password but I of course I knew mine. However, my account is mistakenly switched to users and I lost admin rights, but cannot enter windows as administrator. Is there any way to reset administrator password or some tool to get it or tool to move my account to administrators back
    Thanks

    I have a linux boot cd iso that is specifically designed to allow you to edit the windows registry and change user passwords. It's pretty straightforward, and it guides you through the steps giving you default answers to the questions it asks you. I can't upload it here, it's a little too big. I can IM or email it to you.
