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.

How do i unlock a sony vaio notebook. I forgot my password and dont have those old documents!!


This can be usually done by a Windows Password Tool. However, if you have already activated the Administrator on the PC (Any Brand) with Windows 7. You can try the following steps.

Generally, the logon does not have the administration account listed. So one may want to go restart the machine to the Command Prompt to enable the Command Prompt.

Restart the Machine --> Tap F8 (Advanced boot options) --> Go Save Mode With Command Prompt --> Command Prompt Window appears. Type :
1: net user Administrator /active: yes
2: shutdown -r

This would restart the machine and the Windows Logon will have the Administration account. You can login to the Administration Account and then change the password on the other account.

Also, If you do not have the the admin account activated, then you may want to get windows key from http://www.lostwindowspassword.com/windows-password-recovery.htm

(This is a paid software).

You may get several free software's online as well.

Change password


Change password for what ?
Use dos comand
The administrator account on a Windows machine is the main, root user name that gives full access to the machine.

Administrators should change this password frequently to avoid unauthorized access to the domain or desktop machine.

This can be done in the Windows Control Panel, or use the "net user" command in the Windows DOS prompt.

Log in to the machine using the administrator username and password.
You can also use an account that has administrator privileges on the domain or desktop computer.


Click the Windows "Start" button and select "Run" or "Start Search" (depending on your version of Windows).

In the text box displayed, enter "cmd" and press the "OK" button.
This opens the command prompt window.

Type "net user administrator <new password>" into the command prompt.
Replace "<new password>" with the password you want to set.

Enter the password again for confirmation.
Once you enter it again, the administrator password has been changed.

Test the new password by rebooting the machine and logging in with the new administrator password.
