    can you please tell me how to do that for XP Pro? Ive looked on google and found a guide telling me this:

    Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
    Navigate to the following key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon \ SpecialAccounts \ UserList

    Use the File, Export option to backup the key
    Create a new DWORD Value named Administrator
    Double-click Administrator, and set 1 as its data
    Exit the Registry Editor.


    but i dont get it tells you to exit afterwards...... nothing happens
  3. The drivers from the Nvidia site are usually .exe files so there shouldn't be any need to extract anything, just double clck the file you have downloaded.
