    By the way, if you ever need the "real" admin account (some folders can only be accessed by that account) you open cmd (with admin. privileges) and enter user Administrator /active:yes.

    To deactivate it again the command is user Administrator /active:no.

    Just tried that command....does not work.
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>user Administrator /active:yes

    'user' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

    replaced "user" with my accounts name, same result

    Ok Altae .... Thanks... If I activate it will it stay activated till I deactivate it... Because if it does stay activated I'll leave it on forever...
    I'm the only one that uses this PC...

    the correct command is: net user administrator /active:yes
    net user administrator /active:no
