From my previous post, a bit of Vista help.
You need to have administrator rights.
This is a really easy procedure to follow.
Credit where credit is deserved.

1, Right-click the Computer icon on the Start menu and select Manage from the context menu. When you do, you’ll encounter a UAC, and you will need to respond accordingly.
Once you see the Computer Management console, go to the navigation pane and click the arrow next to Local Users And Groups to expand the branch. Then, click the Users folder and select the Administrator Account.
With the Administrator Account selected, click More Actions under Administrator in the Actions panel and select Properties from the context menu. When you see the Administrator Properties dialog box, clear the Account Is Disabled check box and click OK.
Now that the Administrator Account is activated, you can also work with the account in the User Accounts tool in the Control Panel.
2, Setting the passwordBy default, the Administrator account has a blank password, so the first order of business after activating the account is to set a password — preferably a complex password consisting of at least eight characters and using uppercase, lowercase, and numbers or special symbols.
With the Administrator account selected, click More Actions under Administrator in the Actions panel and select the Set Password command. When you do so, you will see a warning that explains that resetting a password from outside the account can cause irreversible loss of information. However, since the Administrator account has never been used, you can click Proceed with impunity. When you do, you will need to fill in the blanks in the Set Password dialog box and then click OK.
3, Logging in as the AdministratorNow that you’ve activated the Administrator account and set the password, using the account is as simple as logging off. When the Log Off operation completes, you’ll see the Welcome screen and a user icon for the Administrator account. To log on as the Administrator, click the icon and enter the password.
Again, I must emphasize that you should only use the real Administrator account sparingly and never make it your default modus operandi!
What’s your take?It’s a relatively easy operation to activate the real Administrator account in Vista once you know the technique. Now that you know how it’s done, are you likely to use the Vista Administrator account? Have you disabled UAC? If so, do you think that you’ll re-enable it and use this technique instead? Please drop by the discussion area and share your thoughts on the Administrator account technique and UAC in general.
Also you may need to shut down some or all the clapp trapp that makes vista such a resource pig.
I shut down all the usless garbage running in background and to my amazment, Vista can run just as fast as XP.
And you still have the neat clock......(the only thing I like about Vista).
Shutting down the garbage in background also solves all the nagging compatibility
issues with older 32 and or 64 bit software.
