Log on as your computer administrator. I don't have alot of experience with Vista, but I believe there is still a safe mode that you can use the back door on to gain access to the invisible admin account. Once you're in, change your account to admin status. Try that and get back to us.

When ever i run or install a program on vista i right click on the program icon, whatever and click 'run as admininstrator' that should work then.

You could also turn off user account control or UAC for short but i would rather leave it on
