Title says it all :/

 

Can't enable built in admin

Can't install, update, or even run certain applications

Can't reset or use usb and keep data

 

How is this possible? They just allowed the only admin on the computer to be deleted?!?

 

Is there any way to fix this without a wipe?

 

Thanks

Hi, so we are clear, the usual way to access the built in diagnostic administrator account is to open an elevated cmd prompt, go to search and type:- command prompt, right click on the returned command prompt and select "run as administrator" an elevated Cmd prompt will open. At the prompt we type:-

 

net user administrator /active:yes  (press enter)

 

To undo:-

 

net user administrator /active:no

 

Use, switch users, to access the account (there should be no need for a password on this account).

Yes, precisely what I tried. Can't run anything as admin.
