what keys are "Net user administrator /active:yes"? by ToddAndMargo
Hi All, I have a customer that lost/forgot/typo'ed her password. Her Vista Home Edition Administrator's account is disabled. I can edit the registry with Bart PE. Can someone tell me what registry key I need to edit to accomplish what "Net user administrator /active:yes" does?

UAC in Vista Home Premium (hmm... no secpol.msc) by ruben
From what I have read, secpol.msc does not exist in vista home premium. I would really like to set certain programs to be "elevated without prompting" so that I do not have to see the prompt every time, but all the help files point me to secpol.msc.

Something got in and hijacked my ESET security suite and basically took over my entire computer. Almost all of my drivers are disabled and it has control of pretty much every file. I used hijack to find the files, and I notice the registry changes. It wont even let me run a virus scan in safe mode. I was looking at the registry and although normally I wouldn't go near it, I am just erasing the...

Vista Antivirus Pro - malware by John
I have a Toshiba laptop running Windows Vista. Vista Antivirus Pro has appeared and is creating havoc on my system. Is anyone familiar with Vista Antivirus Pro? I removed my laptop from my network and then I ran a boot scan with Avast! It said that it removed a Trojan, but today, Vista Antivirus Pro is back. I don't know what else to do. -- John
