For vista
Open the control panel and select System and Maintenance.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Administrative Tools.

In the new window open Computer Management.

From there open System Tools.

Now open Local Users and Groups.

And finally open Users.

Right click on the account named Administrator and select Properties.

There is a series of tick boxes in the lower half of the properties window deselect the one saying Account Is Disabled.

Apply the changes and Log Off, there should now be 2 accounts in your log in screen, select administrator.


when you go to delete your old account it'll ask you if you want to save the documents and settings from it. say yes and copy the files from the folder into your new admin account.

SOURCE: Accidentaly deleted my user account. Can i retrieve it back?

hi there,
reapplying the user won't help the case,
all you can do is:

you may have to find yourself a good unerase program(try pandora!) to find the deleted data, try to restore(they may be still in good shape, just try) all the files into one folder and then manually choose the data you want back.
A full restore of a once deleted user is almost impossibly, but remembering the actual programs and filenames you had saved on your harddisk may help a lot!

Good Luck.

How do i change admin.


Computer administrators have access to make certain changes on a computer that other users may not have.

Administrators have full freedom to install and uninstall programs, move files around and make changes to the Windows registry.

There are actually three ways that one may become the administrator on their computer; during the initial setup, change the settings in the Control Panel or by having the current administrator change the permissions on the account.

Set up an account during the initial setup of Windows on the computer.

During the setup wizard, you will be asked to set up an administrator account.
Choose the account name, user icon and password to set up the administrator account.

Step 1.
Change your account permissions if there isn't an administrator account currently setup.
During some installations Windows users were allowed to install the program without setting up an administrator account.

Click on "Start" then "Control Panel" to open the Control Panel.

Click on "Users and Accounts" or "Users Accounts and Family Safety".
Click on "User Accounts."

Click on "Add or remove user accounts" then "create a new account".

Assign the new account administrative privileges, a user name and password.
Click "OK" and close all windows. Log in under the new Administrator account.

Have the current administrator change your account privileges from "User" to "Administrator". She can do this by following the same steps described in Step 1.

Instead of creating a new account, she must click on your current account and then apply the new permissions.

If you do not currently have an account on the computer, she will need to create you one.
