    Hi Warren14! The built-in administrator account can be disabled only and it couldn't be deleted any way.
    The second command you executed is also incorrect.
    For example, if you want to delete an account named Joe, you should type:
    net user Joe /del
    To confirm your changes, type the net user command in the Command Prompt to list all existing user accounts. The built-in administrator account will still be there.

    To change an Administrator password

    If windows has automatically created an administrator password here is how I reset mine.
    Open a command prompt as an administrator.
    Type in this code
    net user administrator *
    You will be prompted for a new password, & re-type it a second time.
    exit the command prompt.
    You can then log out of your local account& log in as an administrator.

    Install software with a expired digital certificate.

    After pulling half my hair out & talking 27 different languages all in one sentence I came across this article.
    How to Circumvent to Install Apps In Windows 10
    Only use this method if you know your software is legitimate & the digital certificate has expired.
    Here are the steps:
    1) Log in to your administrator account
    2) Right click on your start button & select "Command Prompt (Admin)
    3) cd to the folder where where your software is installed.
    4) Install the software.

    And that is it.
