How to Enable System Administrator

Posted: 09-29-2008, 04:28 AM
Hi,

A few days ago, my Panda Antivirus had expired and thus exposed to viruse,
adware, trojan etc etc...After i had removed it, my laptop goes haywire.
Later i installed the Kaspersky internet security. After scanning and doing
all neccessary things, i've tried to change my screen saver. However, a pop
up window says 'Your System Administrator has disabled launching of the
Display Settings Control Panel'. I'm the only Administrator of my laptop. I
cannot even edit my Registry as well. Please tell me what to do. Thank you

You must remotly edit registry

Insert your DVD Vista and reboot computer,see
http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/91...up-repair.html but you go
to Command Prompt (not to repair computer)
In Command Prompt type

REGEDIT.EXE

[/b]AND THEN LOAD *SAM* HIVE FROM *C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG
(see yourself MS article how edit registry remotly 'Load a hive into
the registry: Core Services'
(http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...c759303.aspx)d)
for example you will load [b]SAM *hive under *HKEY_LOCALE_MACHINE* as a
*REM_SAM*

Now go to *HKLM\REM_SAM\SAM\Domains\Accounts\Users\Names\<us er name>
*and read what is in the Type column by Default term

(http://img209.imageshack.us/my.php?image=remsamub1.png)'[image:
http://img209.imageshack.us/images/thpix.gif]'
(http://g.imageshack.us/thpix.php)

as you can see the value in Type column is the sam as a user's
identyfication in
*HKLM\REM_SAM\SAM\Domains\Accounts\Users *then go to the user's
identyfication key and click to *F* value and will see:

'[image: http://xs231.xs.to/xs231/08362/poweruser172.jpg.xs.jpg]'
(http://xs.to/xs.php?h=xs231&d=08362&f=poweruser172.jpg)
if will be user account with administrative previlliges (i.e your
account)
14-account is turned on
15 -account is turned off
other values - some errors

if will be user account with limited previlliges or built -in
Administrator account then:
'[image: http://xs231.xs.to/xs231/08362/admin...55.jpg.xs.jpg]'
(http://xs.to/xs.php?h=xs231&d=08362&...strator755.jpg)
10-account is turned on
11-account is turned off
other values - some errors
after all unload hive and run computer normally

In case you did not receive the cd with the system. Then go in th
advanced boot options menu & then press enter on Repair Your Computer
It would ask you to login. Once you have done that. You can run startu
repair

Enable Built-in Administrator Accoun
First you'll need to open a command prompt in administrator mode b
right-clicking and choosing "Run as administrator" (or use th
Ctrl+Shift+Enter shortcut from the search box

Now type the following command
net user administrator /active:ye

You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Lo
out, and you'll now see the Administrator account as a choice

You'll note that there's no password for this account, so if you wan
to leave it enabled you should change the password
