If you you enabled the Administrator account in order to log into Windows, you may want to create a new user account to work from instead. Once created, you should then disable Windows Administrator. We recommend disable Windows Administrator so it is kept safe in case your normal login account will not load.
Keep in mind, administrator access & the Administrator account are different. You can set up other accounts with administrator access, but they will have a different name. This will allow you to make any changes to your computer settings, just as you can with the Administrator account. To do this, just be sure to give the account the correct access.
To disable Windows Administrator account, you will need to bring up the Command Prompt by right clicking it. Command Prompt is located in the Accessories folder located in the Start menu. You must run it as Administrator in order for the command to execute properly. Instead of left clicking the Command Prompt icon in the Accessories folder, you want to right click it instead. Then select “run as administrator” from the list that comes up. Be sure to run it this way, rather than just left clicking it. The command prompt will not accept the command otherwise.
Once at the prompt, type in the following: net user Administrator /active:no
Be sure to have spaces after the word net and after user. Also, there’s a space after Administrator. The last part is all together with no spaces. You will then need to press the Enter key for the command to execute.
Once you hit Enter, you will get a message in return saying it was ran successfully. If it does not run correctly, be sure you are running the Command Prompt as an administrator as mentioned, and that you have entered the text exactly as shown above, including spaces.
After that, you are finished and will not see Administrator at the login screen anymore, unless you reset it again using the reset software.
You can now log into your computer using your regular user account.
