Enable the hidden Adminstrator account with a bootable disk. Work from that account. I would not reset the password on the existing account.

. . . Forgot password . . . Safe mode with command prompt only gets me back to the account screen . . .
Offline NT password reset.
It is a bootable iso image. Just use it to create a bootable cd.
It will allow you to set the admin password to a nul (no password.) You can then boot up the pc and reset the password to what ever you want using the control panel.

Are you talking about the Hidden Administrator Account? If you enabled that, then you are considered super user. You may have to reset the password instead of just enabling the hidden account.

Did you enable the hidden Administrator Account as shown in my post #2 link? After it is enabled, you should see two accounts, your login name account and a account named "Administrator". It sounds like you tried to reset your admin account password and not enable the hidden administrator account.
