Windows Vista: Re-enable the Administrator

The Administrator account doesn't show up in the User Accounts control panel, this is because its disabled by default. For the average user I would not recommend re-enabling this account because it can expose your system to different types of attacks.

For those people who need access to this account, follow the instructions below to re-enable it.
  • Click Start, type "cmd" in the search field.
  • Right-click the cmd.exe item at top of the Start menu, and select 'Run as administrator'.
  • In the MS-DOS command prompt type "net user administrator /active:yes".
