Open elevated command prompt and type in  net user administrator /active:yes  .


To open the elevated command prompt press the Windows key plus the X key.  This will open the Power User Task Menu, scroll down to Command Prompt Admin. and click on it.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
