HOW TO REMOVE GROUP POLICY FOR USEB RESTRICTION FOR CLIENT USER


You will need administrative access to modify any group policies.

From the command line run gpedit.msc. Since you are not listing a particular group policy I can only suggest that you bring up all settings, and then sort them by state. All enabled policies will rise to the top of the list. You can then disable or modify the policies as needed.

Enable / Disable the Local (Hidden) Administrator Account in Windows 7


Ways to Enable / Disable the Built-In Windows 7 Admin Account Many people familiar with prior versions of Windows are curious what happened to the Local Administrator account that was always created by default. Does this account still exist, and how can you access it?<br /> Recently I ran into an awkward situation where after disjoining a Windows 7 client machine from the domain, I was unable to log in to the computer. This was not because I had forgotten the local administrator password, but because the local administrator account was disabled (which is the default behavior in Windows 7). Like in Windows Vista, in Windows 7 the built-in Administrator's account is disabled by default. Furthermore, this account is not associated with any password. After doing some research, I found the following procedure that worked really well.<br /> <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/enable-disable-local-administrator-account-win7.htm">Enable Built-in Administrator Account</a><br /> Basically there are 4 ways in order to activate the account:<br /> A) Command Prompt To enable the built-in Administrator's account by using the Command Prompt please follow these steps:<br /> 1. 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)<br /> <img src="run-command-prompt-as-administrator.jpg" /> 2. After that you only need to enter the simple command below to activate it.<br /> <b><i>net user administrator /active:yes</i></b><br /> <img src="enable-hidden-administrator-account.png" /> 3. You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out, and you'll now see the Administrator account as a choice.<br /> <img src="built-in-windows-7-administrator-account.png" /> You'll note that there's no password for this account, so if you want to leave it enabled you should change the password.<br /> B) Local Security Policy Another way of activating the administrator account in Windows 7 is via Local Security Policy.<br /> 1. Type secpol.msc in the search bar and hit enter.<br /> <img src="secpol.png" /> 2. After the Local Security Policy pops up, navigate to Local Policies-&gt; Security Options where you can see an entry that reads Accounts: Administrator account. Double click the entry to enable it.<br /> <img src="local-security-policy.png" /><br /> <img src="administrator-account-status.png" /> C) Using the Local Users and Groups Snap-in To enable the built-in Administrator's account by using the Local Users and Groups snap-in please follow these steps:<br /> 1. Open Local Users and Groups. You can do so by typing lusrmgr.msc in the Start search box or in the Run command and pressing ENTER. Or, you could open Computer Management by right-clicking Computer in the Start menu and selecting Manage.<br /> 2. Expand System Tools &gt; Local Users and Groups &gt; Users.<br /> 3. Right-click the Administrator account and select "Set Password".<br /> 4. In the"Set Password for Administrator" click "Proceed".<br /> 5. In the"Set Password for Administrator" enter the Administrator's desired password twice, and click "Ok".<br /> 6. Next, enable the Administrator's account. Right-click the Administrator's account and select "Properties".<br /> 7. Un-chek the "Account is disabled" check-box. Click on the "Ok" button.<br /> Administrator's account is now enabled and configured with a password.<br /> D) During the Installation Process There is a 3rd method which advanced users can use. This method can be used during the installation process itself.<br /> 1. During the installation, after being prompted to configure the new user account, you will be able to set the new account's password.<br /> 2. At that phase, press SHIFT and F10 keys together. A Command Prompt window will appear.<br /> 3. In the Command Prompt window, type:<br /> <b><i>net user</i></b><br /> Note how the Administrator account is there, yet the new user account has not been yet created.<br /> 4. To set the Administrator's account password:<br /> <b><i>net user *</i></b><br /> 5. Then enter the required password and confirm it.<br /> 6. To enable the Administrator's accoun:<br /> <b><i>net user administrator /active:yes</i></b><br /> 7. Close the Command Prompt window and continue with the installation process.<br /> If you log off you will now see the Administrator's account as a valid logon option.<br /> 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:<br /> <b><i>net user administrator /active:no</i></b><br /> <img src="disable-local-admin-account.png" /> The administrator account will now be disabled, and shouldn't show up on the login screen anymore.<br /> <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/downloads/Windows_Password_Recovery_Tool_Trial.exe">Hack into Windows 7 Administrator Account </a> [Free Trial] Article source: http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/enable-disable-local-administrator-account-win7.htm<br />

Why do i have to change my paswort all the time?


You might have it set to change at certain intervals
IE: at log in or after each restart .......

Disable password log in
On both PC and Mac computers, you can set up your system to automatically log in to a certain user account.
As a result, this setting will allow you to bypass the password login that is typically required.
You should only enable automatic login on your computer if it cannot be easily accessed by other people.

Open the Start menu and click on "Run."
Type "control userpasswords2" (no quote marks) into the dialog box and press the Enter key.

Uncheck the box next to "Users must enter a username and password" and click on the "Apply" button.

Enter the username of the account you want to automatically log in with and then type that account's password twice to finish setting up automatic login.

Click "OK." Password login has now been disabled.
Mac Instructions

Open System Preferences by clicking on the Dock icon.

Go to the "Accounts" control panel under the "System" heading.

Click on the "Login Options" button at the bottom of the window.

Select the account that you want to automatically log in with from the "Automatic login" drop-down menu.
Password login has now been disabled.

Depending on what operating system you have, there are several steps you must take in order to disable the administrator account and password on your computer.
Most often, the administrator account and password are disabled in order to minimize security risks on your computer.
This account is often the target of attack if your system is compromised, as it allows access to all of the data and programs on the computer.

In order to disable the administrator account and password, follow the steps below that are outlined for the major operating systems.

If you are using Windows XP, you must be logged on as the administrator in order to disable the account settings.
Microsoft suggests that you set up another account with administrator permissions in the event that you may need to reverse this process.
Otherwise, you won't be able to.
Right-click on the My Computer icon on your desktop and select manage.
Click Users under Local Users and Groups in the left pane, which will bring up all users on the computer.
Double-click Administrator and on the General tab, check Account is disabled.
This will disable the Administrator account and password for Windows XP users.
In Windows 2000, go to Start, select Programs and go to Administrative Tools.
Click on Local Security Policy.
Next, click on User Rights Assignment under the Local Policies option in the left panel.
Double-click Deny access to this computer from the network and then click Add under Local Security Policy Setting.
Click Administrator account under Users and Groups, then click Add.
Click OK to complete the disabling of the Administrator account and password.

In Windows Vista, the Administrator account is automatically disabled.
However, if you have enabled it, you will need to open a command prompt.
Go to Start Menu, click All Programs, select Accessories and right-click on Command Prompt and click run as Administrator.
Open the command box and type net user administrator/active:no. Press enter and you should receive a prompt stating the command was completed successfully.

If you are running a Mac, the Administrator account is enabled by default.
To disable the account and password, go to the Apple menu, click System Preferences.
Choose Accounts from the View menu and click the lock to authenticate with the administrator account password.
Click login options, click edit, and after clicking the lock in the Directory Utility window, click Disable Root User from the Edit menu.

I have a new windows vista and am trying to download cd that came with my hp photo smart camera E317 and vista doesnt let me. It says I have to log on as administrator.


hi roberson
you could do .

In Windows Vista, you do not have immediate access to the Admin Account. When logging into Windows Vista, you do not have the option of using this account.

From the Start menu, simply right-click on Computer and choose Manage. Next, expand Local Users and Groups and select the Users folder. The final step is to right-click on the Administrator login and choose properties. Clear the Account is Disabled checkbox and you have now enabled your Administrator account.
