Default Re: vista problem

Have you tried goto Start > Run and type: control userpasswords2
then click ok, then there should be a dailog box appear on this box near the top there will be a box checked saying all users must enter a user name and password to use this computer - uncheck this box and click ok, you may be prompted to enter the username you want wndows to logon and enter the accounts password.

lol good good, on any version of windows (as far as I know anyway) you can access the Run command, by holding the windows key (the one with the windows flag) and pressing R on the keyboard.

Just as an FYI, the search bar can act as a run command. Otherwise you can customize the startmenu (right click an open place on the startmenu and click properties. then click customize) then you can add the Run box to the start menu.
