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"

This is not stored in the registry.

Accounts: Administrator account status under Computer
Configuration\Windows Settings\Local Policies\Security Options

That would explain why I could not find anything despite
all the Googling ("Just Google it": the new RTFM) in the
world. Great link!

Thank you,
