In order to logon as an Administrator you need to perform the
following actions. These will work for both WinVista and Win7.
- Enable Built-in Administrator Account
First you'll need to open a command prompt in administrator mode by
right-clicking and choosing "Run as administrator"
(or use the Ctrl+Shift+Enter shortcut from the search box)
- Now type the following command:
net user administrator /active:yes
You should see a message that the command completed successfully.
Log out, and you'll now see the Administrator account as a choice.
- Disable Built-in Administrator Account
Make sure you are logged on as your regular user account, and then open
an administrator mode command prompt as above. Type the following command:
net user administrator /active:no
