Windows Vista sysprep.exe /generalize error "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation."

I wanted to disable the "Administrator" account for security purposes and I read some "guide" on the internet that recommended that we run "C:\Windows\System32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /generalize".  I also clicked the option for "Generalize" and the computer rebooted and gave some OOBE error and restarted, and now I get the error above no matter what.

I read that some drivers such as ones from AVIRA AV can cause this because they're unsigned.   I'm using Symantec so I disabled the "Digital Driver Signature Enforcement" with no luck.

I've tried from Safe Mode but the same thing just keeps happening.
