Enable And Logon As The "true" Administrator In Windows

Post by Streetz on Wed Oct 08, 2008 10:14 am

start>rightclick Computer>manage>users>users>rightclick administrator>properties>General Tab>uncheck"Disabled"

then set a password, right click administrator>set password.

open command prompt as administrator (right click method) and type in this:

net user administrator /active:yes

then log out, login as administrator


to disable:

start>rightclick Computer>manage>users>users>rightclick administrator>properties>General Tab>check"Disabled"

open command prompt as administrator (right click method) and type in this:

net user administrator /active:no


simple, quick, yet effective


Edit: Update

Apparently vista Home doesn't like the method of using the Computer Management and the option is removed, the following command prompt code will work on all versions

Code:
net user Administrator insertpasswordhere /active:yes

make sure to right click and run cmd as administrator
