On a windows xp computer, I tried the trick of logging in as the "SYSTEM" user. I found a setting that allowed me to see (and modify) all the users, including "LOCAL SERVICE" and "SYSTEM". Now I want to find it on a windows 7 computer but I don't know how. I simply can't remember how I got to the settings in xp.

 

NOTE: by user management tool, I do not mean the user accounts page in control panel.

Do you mean the hidden Windows Administrator account?  If so please see this: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/enable-disable-windows-administrator-account/

well, no. The "SYSTEM" user is like the "root" user in linux.

By this i mean a settings page that allows me to see ALL users including "SYSTEM" and"Local Service".

I had found it, sorta. By typing in "control userpasswords2" and selecting the "advanced" tab, I find the "Advanced user management" button!

 

Guess what?

EXACTLY! But for reasons that I don't know of, M$ decided to not include lusrmgr (that window) in to windows 7 home edition. Many of the things it does can be done by registry hacks, which are daunting in the least, computer breaking in the most. If M$ just added the lusrmgr snap-in, it would be easier and safer to modify the computer.
