You want to re-enable a login account in Windows Vista that has been previously disabled or restricted by your brother. But the problem, he forgot already how to enable the logon account. Here's my Quick Tip for you Jasper...

Error Message "Logon failure: Account currently disabled"

Open the command prompt as administrator, Type cmd in the Start Menu Search > CTRL+SHIFT and press Enter

Command to Disable the account

Command to activate or re-enable the account
