Okay. My grandmother has vista. I can't get into her admin account. She does have a regular user account set up and internet access, but no downloading/parental controls are on. I can burn cd's though. I am also able to transfer things from other computers via flash drive. So now after getting the offline nt editor, I figured everything was all good. I burned the iso, i booted from the cd, everything was working fine and dandy until....STEP 2!

So, it asks me for the correct registry path
it's already there so I hit enter... but, instead of moving on to the elusive password reset option, I get this:

EXPAND: [Ww] [Ii] [Nn] [Dd] [Oo] [Ww] [Ss] / [Ss] [Yy] [Ss] [Tt] [Ee] [Mm] [3] [2] / [Cc] [Oo] [Nn] [Ff] [Ii] [Gg]:

What is the path to the windows system registry? (relative to the windows disk)
[windows/system32/config]:

And so on and so on...

Oh, and the only way out of it is ctrl alt delete or a hard shutdown.

Anyone help with the correct path?

Maybe it's hidden for you?

computer -> press alt -> tools -> folder options -> view -> show hidden files

Nope all showing.

And I'm leaving Vista on it.

It's grand when you get rid of the permission stuff I found on this laptop.

uninstall vista install XP and problem solved.

The only people who hate Vista are either:

A.) Jumping on the bandwagon, and have never used it,

or

B.) Too unintelligent to understand how to use it correctly (read: 64bit Vista </3 1gb RAM)

Only option left I see is

control panel -> user account -> turn user account control off

or open task manager , file > run, type regedit

Agree with that.

The only prob I had with vista and I was am still am wondering why pl consider vista sucky is with one little game. An error message was saying it has compatibility issues but I would just click on ignore it and the game would still work perfectly.
