  1. I am having problems because the file NTUSER.DAT is missing from the Documents and Settings\Administrator folder. I can log in with username "Administrator" so that user profile is enabled.

    I have another account with administrative privileges. Would it be OK to delete the Administrator account in Computer Management/Local Users and Groups/Users and then recreate it later while logged on under the other account with administrative privileges?

    Thanks.
