  1. Hiya Harry – great stuff! Thanks for letting me know about that psexec tool… I hadn’t come across it on my extensive travels on google trying to find an answer to this!

    I’ll edit my post with a link to your post also 🙂


  2. Same problem. So I booted with a ultimate boot disk for windows. Once there I made a new adminstartor account. Restarted when in to the new account and moved over what I needed and turn off the guest account.
