How to open account when it?s locked in vista.
  

I have a computer at home and was using it from three years. The problem with me is that when I tried to open the account it does not open it. It seems like there is a problem . I want to open my account as fast as possible. It shows a message the account is currently locked. Can someone help?

You have to restart your computer as soon as you restart the computer start to press F8. Then window will open then there will be an option for normal mode and safe mode. Then click on safe mode with command prompt. In command prompt write 'net space user' then windows will open there will be your login then change your password or you can just move on start then to the control panel there you will find administrative tools. Then inside administrative tools lock the 'security police'. Then there will be account lockout threshold double click then press OK. The account will not be locked out.

See this problem may be due the password you may have attempted the password wrong for several times. If it would be the isssue try to use the vista cd and run recovery files in the vista cd.

To disable and lock the computer. download Remove_Disable_Lock_CtrlAltDel.reg from an official website. after that save the .reg file in the desktop. then click on merge by right clicking on it. after you have completed these then run. if UAC click continue then OK. then click on OK when prompted window will occur. after you have completed with these restart your PC
