My administrator account has been disabled and i have also not any other user account to open my window how i can enable my account now without opening window?


you can try starting up pressing F8 and choosing safe mode with command prompt. If you get to the command prompt type net user administrator /active:yes then press enter then it should say command done successfully then close command prompt and restart (you may have to Ctrl Alt Del.)

How to enable the hidden Administrator account in Windows 7 and Windows Vista


Unlike Windows XP the administrator account is disabled by default in Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Many people prefer to have the amin account open just in case they forget their main account password or to alocate admin rights over another user account like your childrens for example.

In the tip I am going to tell you how to enable the admistrator account so it is visible on the Welcome Screen.

These step only apply to Windows 7 and Windows Vista accounts that have admin rights, they won't work on an account which is limited or which is a guest account.


1. Click on the Start Menu.
2. Click on All Programs.
3. Click on Accessories.
4. Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. An Adminstarator Command prompt window will open.
5. In the command window type "net user adminstrator /active:yes" or "net user adminstrator active:yes"(with out the quotation marks)
6. to disable the admin account type in the command window "net user adminstrator /active:no" or "net user adminstrator active:no" (without the quotation marks)
7. Close the command window.
8. Log out of your account.

When you have logged out of your account you will see the Administrator account on the Welcome Screen.
If you don't see the admin account straight away all you have to do is restart your computer.

That should be it.

Tip

"Unlock the super secret Administrator account for vista"


Deep inside the bowels of Windows vista, there's a secret Administrator account, and it's different from the normal administrator account you most likely have set up on your PC. This Administrator account is not part of the Administrator group. (Confused yet? You should be.) It's a kind of superadministrator, akin to the root account in Unix, and by default it's turned off and hidden. (In describing this hack, we'll always use the capital "A" for the secret Administrator account, and a lowercase "a" for a normal administrator account.)
In versions of Windows before Windows Vista, the Administrator account wasn't hidden, and many people used it as their main or only account. This Administrator account had full rights over the computer.
In Windows Vista, Microsoft changed that. In VISTA , the Administrator account is not subject to UAC, but normal administrator accounts are. So the Administrator can make any changes to the systemand will see no UAC prompts.
Turning on the Administrator account is straightforward. First, open an elevated command prompt by typing cmd into the Search box on the Start menu, right-clicking the command prompt icon that appears at the top of the Start menu, then selecting Run as administrator — or just use the shortcut you created in the previous hack.
Then enter this command and press Enter:
Net user administrator /active:yes
From now on, the Administrator account will appear as an option on the Welcome screen, along with any user accounts you may have set up. Use it like any other account. Be aware that it won't have a password yet, so it's a good idea to set a password for it.
If you want to disable the account and hide it, enter this command at an elevated command prompt and press Enter:
Net user administrator /active:no
HOPE THIS HELPS.
:-)

Cannot add user in win 7 via cmd. System error 234


In order to make it work, you will need to open super administrator option following steps below:

Right click on CMD / Command Prompt , choose "Run as Administrator" on popup box click on "Continue".
Now type in Net user administrator /active:yes and press Enter.

It will show you "The command completed successfully".

Now try adding new user. Once you are done, please disable administrator option again following same as before, just little change in command as below:

Net user administrator /active:no

That's all. I hope you can do it.

Accont losted


Hello,

we have one type of method to solve this problem. but, not regularly.

if you have any other administrator account, you can log in to this and work with your account.

or

if you did not enter any administrator authentication(password), when the windows xp was installed, you can easily manage this.
press CTRL + ALT + DEL keys simultaneously (two times) and type the username as "administrator". then enter without giving a password.

or

you can connect your hard disk with any other hard disk. boot through the other hard disk. then you will see your disk drives on the another disk. Try to delete the "SAM" file on your os (C:\windows\system32\). (Only on your hard disk).
then reboot via your hard disk. now, you have no need to enter any username or password. just enter and go to the windows desktop


if it is not possible for you, just go for password recovery software

thank you,

ADMINISTRATOR account disabled


Boot your computer into Safe Mode. It sometimes varies, but the typical way on most WinXP

based machines is to strike the F8 key during P.O.S.T. Once the drivers load you need to

access the Command Prompt. START / ALL PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / COMMAND

PROMPT. A new window will appear.

At command prompt, type "control userpasswords2" and press Enter to open the Windows 2000-style User Accounts application.

On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and then click OK.

In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user name and password for the account you want to be
logged on each time you start your computer.
