It looks like I was right. Here's a nifty trick for you. I nearly fell over at this one.
In WinXP, log off all users and get onto the user selection screen. Now, hit Control + Alt + Delete twice.
Voila! Can we say, "Holy Hidden Administrator, Batman!"
Or maybe I'm just slow. I honestly had no idea that was there. But using the ACTUAL administrator account, your TIF confusion should rapidly dissipate.
On a side note, I got that info from http://www.astalavista.com/library/m...ipsByANKIT.rtf
Read through that file and be sigh in relief.
