Easy enable real Administrator account in Windows Vista
Here’s a solution to enable the administrator account without the use of a policy editor which isn’t available in Windows Vista Home or Home Premium.
- Click START
- Type: cmd
- Right click cmd, click Run As Administrator
- Type: net user administrator /active:yes
- Press enter
Now log off, log on with the new administrator account. Here you go. Full control, even with UAC enabled. Best deal is to do this right after a clean install because profiles and personal files are difficult to copy or transfer fully to the admin account. After 1st logon, rename the new admin account to whatever you like. Assign a new password and delete your install account.
