A new tutorial titled How to enable and disable the Windows Vista and Windows 7 Administrator account was added by BleepingComputer.com. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

The built-in Administrator account is disabled by default in Windows 7 and Windows Vista. It is disabled to enhance security as this is a common account targeted by hacking scripts and hackers when they try and access your computer without your permissions. In my opinion, you should leave the Administrator account disabled, but as there have been many requests for this information, I have decided to write this guide. This guide will provide three methods that will allow you to enable your Administrator account in Windows 7 and Windows Vista. It is important to note that in order to perform either of these methods you will need to be logged in with an account with Administrator privileges. Also, if you are enabling the Administrator account for the first time you will also need to assign it a strong password as it does not have a password by default.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
