Default Administrator

Posted: 06-19-2006, 09:51 AM
Can anyone please tell me how to log in with the default Administrator's
account. I have an Administrator's account but Vista will not allow me to
delete certain files.
It says I need Administrator approval even though I am the Administrator

I have the same problem. I am trying to delete the windows.old folder but I
am told I need to be logged in as Administrator.

In XP you used to press Ctrl + Alt + Delete twice at the logon screen to log
in as administrator, this does not seem to be the same in Vista.

Anyone who knows how to log in with the Administrator account?

I think you are probably signe in as administrator. The extra dialogue that
tell you that you need to be administrator is just a security step to ensure
you really want to do the delete or whatever.
This is what Linux does as well.

In this case it is not a security step to confirm - it is a message saying
that you don't have permission to delete it. But this isn't the issue... The
files can be deleted in Safe Mode

The issue is... How do you log in with the defult system Administrator
account?

If You want to log in as administrator and don't know which account is the
Admin-Account You can check the User-Account in Windows system control.

There You can see all Admin or user accounts !

Vista Administrator account: accessing


right click on "computer" and click on manage.
click on "local users and groups", click on "users", click on
"administrator" and right click, click on properties. toggle the box marked
"account is disabled". this should clear this box. now close all windows.
in control panel click on "administrative tools", now click on "local
security policy". Local Policies/Security Options in :interactive logon:"
enable "Do not display last
last user name"

In Vista the Administrator account is the only one really that I have been
able to tell that really has full access. the get to some places you just
have to run apps as Administrator. But at least you will be able to get into
the account when you need to.
