View Full Version : Disable built in administrator account in Windows 7 home premuim

13-10-2010, 02:31 PM
I enabled the built in admin account from within the normal account in safe mode using the net user administrator active:yes command to fix a few issues with the normal account.

Now when I go to disable the account using the same method (net user administrator active:no) the admin account stays enabled, even though the command prompt says it's been successfully disabled. I'm running the command prompt as administrator.

Anyone got any ideas? :p

Cough, cough...

I've forgotten the / before active

Funny, it enabled without the slash but wouldn't disable.
