Administrator password to login not working


Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows 7, and its predecessor, Vista, offer a new layer of security that is different from previous releases, such as XP or 2000.
The earlier Windows versions treated all users as system administrators by default. With Windows Vista and 7, all accounts are treated as limited users.
The User Account Control utility provides elevated permissions when required and prompts users for those permissions.
You can control UAC behavior in Windows 7 so it does not prompt you for these permissions.
Start your computer with Windows 7 and log in as you normally would. Your desktop should appear, and any background applications should be closed.
Click the Windows "Start" orb at the lower left corner of your screen.
Click your account picture at the top right of the menu.
You will be presented with a window that allows you to make changes to your user account.
Click the link that says "Change User Account Control Settings."

Look for the User Account Control options slider.
The default option of User Account Control is to notify you only when programs try to make changes to your computer or you install new programs.
The option directly below that does the same thing but does not dim your desktop.
The "Never Notify" option at the bottom of the list eliminates the prompts for permissions.
Move the slider to the bottom of the options window.
Click "OK."
You may be prompted one last time from User Account Control to confirm your settings and reboot your computer.

Log in as an Administrator on Windows 7
If you've recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7, you're probably wondering how to log in as an administrator. In Windows XP, the administrator account was clearly visible from the log-on page, but it's no longer there in Windows 7.

Although there is an administrator account, it must first be enabled with the Windows command prompt before you're able to use it. Enabling the administrator account lets you troubleshoot problems with programs on your computer.

Click on the "Start" button, and then type "command" into the search bar.
Right-click "Command Prompt" when the results appear.
Click "Run as Administrator."
The command prompt opens.

Type "net user administrator /active:yes," excluding the quotation marks.
Hit "Enter."
Click "Start," and then click "Switch User." Click the "Administrator" icon to log in.

Upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7 - it can be done!


Windows XP has been around for over 12 years. With that much time in use, there are bound to be situations where exporting data, finding install disks, installing the new OS, reinstalling the program and then restoring the data is not a viable option or is doomed to fail. What can you do if you are faced with this situation? Simply, upgrade the system to Windows 7!
Despite Microsoft's claim that there is no upgrade path from Windows XP to Windows 7, there is a way to make this happen. As a consultant, I am faced with this issue several times a month and fully expect this to rise as more companies transition to Windows 7. The reasons to upgrade the existing system range from legacy databases that cannot easily be exported and imported, software that is permanently associated with the specific PC hardware and software that require a hardware dongle that does not work with newer PC's. Regardless of the reason, there is a way to upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7.
Let me say at this point that the process to upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7 is involved and there are some things you will need to prepare for to make this process successful. If you have Windows XP 64 bit, you can upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit. If you have Windows XP 32 bit (as most installs are), you will have to use Windows 7 32 bit.
Tools you will need:
1. Download Windows Upgrade Advisor
2. External hard drive
3. Windows Vista Business Edition Service Pack 1 (no license needed)
4. Windows 7 Professional with license
The Prep:
As with any major change, you need to create a backup of the existing system. Use your favorite method of backing up the OS, data and system settings (I prefer to use Ghost to get an entire image of the hard drive in a short period of time).
Create the backup of Windows XP:
Before continuing, disconnect all hardware from the PC and uninstall all printers, scanners and any other hardware devices that will need a new Windows 7 driver. This step will save you time troubleshooting a failed device once Windows 7 is installed.
Also, verify the Administrator account log in and password or setup a new local Administrator level user login and password.
Run Windows Upgrade Advisor. This will indicate if there are any software or hardware that is currently in use that absolutely will NOT work with Windows 7. Evaluate all non-compatible software and hardware issue with the user and see if this is a "show stopper".
You can still proceed with the upgrade and see if you can make the software or hardware to work by changing the compatibility settings in Windows 7.
The Process:
With Windows XP running, put the Windows Vista Business disk in and start the upgrade process. When prompted, choose UPGRADE. (This process can take some time so be patient.) Let this finish and the system will reboot. Verify Windows Vista is properly installed by logging in using the local Administrator account.
Reboot Windows Vista at least 2 times, logging in each time, to ensure the new OS is working correctly.
With Windows Vista running, insert the Windows 7 disk and start the upgrade process. Choose the UPGRADE option again and let this complete (again, this will take some time so be patient). Once Windows 7 is installed, the system will reboot. Use the local Administrator account to login and test the OS to ensure it installed properly.
Test everything:
Test everything - log into each program and verify access and functionality. Do not skimp on this step - get the user to log in and watch them run their programs.
Once initial testing is complete, re-install the printers, scanners and other hardware that will need updated drivers to work correctly.
I have followed these steps numerous times and it has worked perfectly each time. Removing the printers and hardware before upgrading will save you time and was a lesson I learned after my first upgrade.

I'm not able to open any of the applications on Win7 OS. Everytime I try to open any applications it asks me to save it. Could you please what is the problem and how can it be resolved?


Is you Windows 7 pre-installed with the computer? If not, please insert the Windows 7 disk, and try to run "Repair Install".

1. Start Windows 7, and log on to an administrator account.

2. Disable any 3rd party firewall, antivirus, or other security program to avoid it from possibly preventing the repair upgrade installation of Windows 7.

3. Place your Windows 7 installation DVD into the DVD drive, while still in Windows 7 (Step 1), and click on the Run setup.exe option in the AutoPlay window from within the currently installed Windows 7. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: If the AutoPlay window does not open, then open the drive folder in Computer and run the setup.exe file.

4. If prompted by UAC, then click on Yes.

5. Click on the Install Now button to start the installation. (See screenshot below)

6. Uncheck the I want to help make Windows installation better box (unless you would like to ), and click on the Go online to get the latest updates for installation option. (See screenshot below)

7. Windows 7 will now check online for and install any available installation updates. (See screenshots below)

8. Check the I accept the license terms box and click on Next. (See screenshot below)

9. Click on the Upgrade option. (See screenshot below)

10. The installation of Windows 7 will now begin. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: During the installation process, your screen may flash and computer will restart a few times.

11. After the final restart, you will see this screen for a moment. (See screenshot below)

12. Type in your Windows 7 product key number. (See screenshot below step 13)

13. Uncheck the Automatically activate Windows when I'm online box unchecked, then click on the Next button. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: You can activate Windows 7 later after you make sure it is running properly. (See step 20 below)
If you chose to automatically activate Windows online when you set up your computer, automatic activation begins trying to activate your copy of Windows three days after you log on for the first time.

14. Click on Use recommended settings. (See screenshot below)

15. Select your time zone and set your time and date settings, then click on the Next button. (See screenshot below)

16. Click on the option for your computer's location to select the correct network location type settings to be applied for that location. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: It is best to select Public location for the best security.

17. Windows 7 will now prepare your desktop to startup. (See screenshots below)

18. Check to see if you are missing any user files. If you are, then you can copy them from the C:\Windows.old or the hidden protected operating system C:\$INPLACE.~TR and C:\WINDOWS.~Q backup folders. (See screenshot below)

19. If everythig checks out in step 18, then you can run Disk Cleanup (step 6 at this link). You will need to click on the Clean up system files button first, and then check the Files discarded by Windows upgrade, Previous Windows installations, and Windows upgrade log files boxes. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: This will delete the C:\Windows.old, C:\$INPLACE.~TR and C:\WINDOWS.~Q folders from step 18 above.

20. Refresh your Windows Experience Index (WEI) score.

21. When done, all you will need to do is to activate Windows 7, and make sure that your security programs are enabled again.
