    For registry problems this may work for you......

    1) Click the Start and click on Run (or press the Windows key + R)
    2) Type in regedit and press OK. If it asks you to open this via UAP, then
    click Allow.
    3) In the Registry Editor, navigate to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.
    4) In the right hand pane, right click the mouse and select New then Key. A
    new folder should appear in the left hand pane.
    5) Name this new key SpecialAccounts and press Enter.
    6) Right click the mouse on the new SpecialAccounts key in the left hand
    pane, select New then Key again to make a "sub-key".
    7) Name this new key UserList and then press Enter. In this new UserList
    key, right click in the right hand pane and select New then DWORD (32-bit)
    and name this Administrator then press Enter.
    8) Double click on the new DWORD you just made, and set the value to 1 then
    press OK.
    9) Restart the computer to see the effects - from the Welcome screen you
    should be able to login as the administrator any time you wish.

    Before you restart make sure you check this setting,
    click Start, Run, type in compmgmt.msc, hit OK. Under "Local Users and Groups", select Users, double
    click on the Administrator then make sure "account is disabled" is unchecked.

    Run UWT as admin and see if it helps.

    I received the reply: Cannot create key: you do not have the requiste permissions to create a new key under winlogon.

    thank you. the whole purpose was to down load tweaker to keep my children from changing the time zone so it messes up the time for the parental logging program.
    Now I can not get into the admin account at all. and the limited user family account is still operating as normal.

    Is the Admin Account not displaying at all or is it password protected and will not let you access it?
