to delete an user account you must be a Administrator

Tip

Enabling Administrator Account in Windows 7


In Windows 7, like Windows Vista, when you install the operating system, you are asked to enter a user name which will be the primary local user that will use this system.
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


The new user which is created during the installation is configured to be a member of the built-in Administrators group, and in fact, can be used for any management task. That use is in fact equivalent by all means with the original built-in Administrator account.
However, there may be situations where one would like to use the built-in Administrator account instead of that "new" user. One of these might be when you're building a system for cloning purposes, and would like all cloned machines to be able to use the built-in Administrator's account.
Note that since that account does NOT have a password, enabling it without properly setting a password for that account will open a serious security opening on your system!

To enable the built-in Administrator's account by using the Local Users and Groups snap-in please follow these steps:
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.

Expand System Tools > Local Users and Groups > Users.
Right-click the Administrator account and select "Set Password

In the"Set Password for Administrator" click "Proceed".

In the"Set Password for Administrator" enter the Administrator's desired password twice, and click "Ok".

Next, enable the Administrator's account. Right-click the Administrator's account and select "Properties".

Un-chek the "Account is disabled" check-box. Click on the "Ok" button.


Administrator's account is now enabled and configured with a password.

I got a acer aspire 5334 laptop with windows 7 home premium, & I am the only user on the laptop. I am stuck at the login page because I forgot my password . I typed in millions of different passwords....


You don't have to reinstall Windows 7, here are some method I know:
1. Log on your computer by using built-in Administrator account in safe mode, its password is default blank if you never change it. So that you can use it to change all other user password.
2.Use a password reset disk if you have already created.
3.If the methods above are unavailable,you have to reinstall your system,or else you must use a password tool to crack it.

Sir in windows 7 how can i delete administrator account


For that you need to enter in default administrator account.
By default there is 1 default administrator account in windows then you can create new administrator account as you like.
If you want to delete your new created administrator account then enter in default administrator account for that when it ask for use name and password enter in user name "administrator" then enter password if any or leave it blank then you can login as administrator accounts.
then right click on my computer then click on manage then go to Local user and groups then click on user right click on your account and delete it you can also create new account there.You can also use control panel->user accounts for modify users accounts.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

What account do you mean? Is it your windows account or an email account or a forum account?
If it is windows, what version are you using? If its email, who is the provider (Yahoo, Hotmail etc).

I forgot my administrator password


The administrator password is removed very easyly, first you should download the ER COMMANDER then make a bootable cd of this software, after that when you start the computer give a first priority to your CD/RW or DVD/RW etc. then automatically ER COMMANDER will run and show you the screen like windows xp looks, then you have to go to start button and click the users, and change that your administrator password.

Forgot administrator's password


Hi Reggie,

Please read the entire article before proceeding:

All administrator accounts are created equal, with equal
powers, except that the main adiminstrator account cannot
be deleted and it does not appear on the login (or users)
menu by default.

You do need an alternate administrator account to solve this
problem. You must login to a user account with administrative
privileges in order to access system resources, take ownership
of files and folders, and to change other people's passwords.
(including the built-in administrator account)

Otherwise, what would be the point of any security at all,
if you could bypass it at will.

If you can login to another account with administrator pri'vs,
then follow me. Otherwise you may have to pursue more difficult
options, as explained later.

1) Open up the control panel
2) Open up Administrative tools
3) Open up local security settings
4) Expand Local policies in the LHS folder tree

Check:
Accounts: Administrator Account Status = Enabled
Accounts: Rename Administrator Account = Administrator

this is to make sure that the admin account is enabled,
and has not been renamed. You can double click on these
settings to change them. Is you are for some reason unable
to enable the admin account, you must reboot to safe mode,
where the admin account is always enabled.

Now that you are sure that you have a functioning administrator
account, you must reset the password, since you cannot
retrieve it:


From the control panel, once again open up

Administrative Tools ---->
Computer Management --->
Local users and Groups ---->
Users ----->
Administrator ---->
Right click on administrator ---->
SET PASSWORD

....

This should do it.

N.B.
The administrator account will be re-created, you will loose
1) All settings and preferences
2) Access to any NTFS encrypted files the administrator
has encrypted.
3) Stored network and internet passwords (the administrator's)
4) Personal security certificates.

This procedure is different from simply changing the password,
because you don't know the original, so Windows treats it as a
hostile takeover, That's why you loose access to encrypted files.

If you have trouble starting the computer management Applet,
Run it manually:

START --> RUN --> compmgmt.msc

or

...\WINDOWS\system32\mmc.exe compmgmt.msc

==========================================

Trick:

If you do not have access to an existing account
with administrative privileges, you may be able to hack in
with and old setup disk from Windows 2000, with
no service packs, or at most XP1

The reason is that Windows 2000 did not anticipate nor
respect Windows XP security.

1) Reboot from the 2000 disk, and follow the on screen
prompts to repair the system using the

SYSTEM RECOVERY CONSOLE.

2) Do not proceed to install Win 2000, make sure you
get out before it asks you to format a disk, if you get
there you missed the prompt and you have gone too far,
Reboot and try again.

3) Once you are in the recovery console = DOS like environment
type HELP, and it will give you a list of commands.

You should be able to create a new user account
(with admin or change the admin password privs)

4) The last alternative is to purchase an XP password recovery
utility, which you run from a boot CD.

Good luck

Martin.
