Well, here's a good one for you.
I'm a security freak, and i figured id set up a customized, super secure
guest account. I also modified the "Admin" and my ("Bryan M. Templin")
accounts, seeing as how I am the Admin and main user after all. Well, I
accidentally locked both the "Admin" and "Bryan M. Templin" accounts, and can
now only log in as the custom guest account (normal guest is disabled). Is
there any way to unlock the "Admin" and "Bryan M. Templin" accounts? I've
tried DOS with the 'gpupdate' command and I've tried lookin throught the
Registry with 'regedit', but to no avail. Please help me! I must be able to
use my account as it contains confidential Conservation Commission
documentation that I must periodically update and some files that need to be
accessed sparodically. PLEASE HELP!

Thank you,
Bryan M. Templin

P.S. I am running Windows XP Pro SP2 with all critical and recommended
updates.

Boot from the XP CD and opt to do a repair install. This should return the
accounts to 'normal'.
