By Microsoft Design, it is impossible to remove the original "Administrator" account.

Perhaps the original ' administrator' account has been renamed to be that user.  If so, it cannot be deleted.
Just rename it to "Administrator" (right click on 'My Computer'-> manage-> local users and groups-> users-> right click on the user-> rename) and put a good password on it.

You can also try to delete the profile.
Right click on "My Computer"-> properties-> Advanced (tab)-> settings (under user profiles)-> [select user]-> Delete

  • I've removed my built-in administrative user, how can I restore that?

    I've removed my built-in administrative user, how can I restore that?

    In fact, you can't remove the administrator account; the system will not let you. You can change or remove the password. If you know your way around the system, you can DISABLE the administrator account or if you have created a user account with administrative access during the initial installation, the built-in Administrator account will be disabled automatically. If the last user account with administrative access is removed, the built-in Administrator account should be automatically enabled only if the computer is part of a Windows/AD domain. If you need to access the built-in Administrator account, you will need to open an administrative command prompt (so you still need an administrator account and the password), and then type: net user administrator / Active: Yes. This will activate the built-in account. If you simply remove the password of an administrator account, you just provide a blank password.

  • How can I change the name of the user folder on drive C in Microsoft Vista?

    Hello. My father bought me a laptop about a year ago and when he started, he was the administrator. I want to change it because it is mine. I went into the Panel and changed the administrator.

    When you start the laptop, when you try and you enter in you must click on the name and photo. That's my name.
    When you open start, my name is there on the right with its own content of contacts, desktop, documents, downloads, Favorites, links, music, images, games, videos and research.

    The problem is when I open my C drive and go to users, there is a folder with the name of my father and the public. If you open the name of my father, it contained contacts, desktop, documents, downloads, Favorites, links, music, images, games, videos and research.

    I tried to change it again via Control Panel and just try to rename the folder. None of those who worked.
    How can I change my name? Is it still possible?

    Thanks for your help.

    Your father apparently just rename her user account with your name. As you have discovered, you cannot change a user account by changing just the name. Simply by changing the name will do a cosmetic change only and does not affect the underlying files/folders in the profile. If it is important for you:

    1. from an administrator account, rename the account she had originally. Then create the new Standard * user account named in the way that you want and at least an additional administrator account. Call the last 'CompAdmin' or 'Tech' or similar.
    2 log in to the new Standard user account once if the profile of the files/folders are created and then connect to CompAdmin.
    3. now go to control panel > system > advanced > user profile > settings *.
    4. you will see where you can copy user accounts. Copy the old account to the new from there. Use her browse to select your new account (C:\Users\newaccount).
    5 log in to the new account correctly named and make sure all your stuff is here and it works as you want. When you are satisfied, you can log on and CompAdmin and remove the old account from the control panel > user accounts.

    * In the course of running as a user Standard is recommended for security reasons and will help protect your computer against infections. You don't want to run as administrator for your daily work. Keep CompAdmin for your administrative account and use it only for the elevation and emergency situations.

    * If you do not want to bother copying old misnamed account settings, you can skip this bit and simply copy your data to the new user account instead.

    If you want to access your account again, correctly named automatically, follow these steps:

    Start Orb > Search box > type: netplwiz [Enter]
    Click continue (or provide an administrator password) when you are prompted by UAC

    Uncheck "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Select a user account to connect automatically by clicking on the account you want to highlight and press OK. Enter the password for this user account (when it exists) when you are prompted. Leave blank if there is no password (null). MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

    Hello

    What you see in system properties / user profiles window is normal. It shows the name of the computer + your user account name.

    You can change your user account name.

    Press the Windows key + X to display the System Menu , and then click Control Panel.

    Select the user accounts , then click on the option change the name of your account .

    One thing that you must be aware, is that, even if you change your account name, the only place where you can see the new name is on the Log In screen and the start screen. All of your user files will still show the old name in the file Explorer.

    Hi when I type in hudsocat on search engines my username shows how can I make this stop happening Bravo dave

    You used this name (or someone) to write on various public websites, so there is no way you can stop the search engines to find out who.  Stop display using this name, delete current jobs if you can, etc. and over time, that he will fall in search listings, and may disappear with time.  Basically, everything you post publicly on the web is indexed and is available for as long there.

    And, on the other hand, you posted this in the MSE forum... an anti-virus forum which does not apply to your question.

    Use your Windows repair CD to start the computer in Repair Mode, and then use the system restore to set Windows to the Restore Point as soon as you can find. The chances are that this will be a point before they changed the password.

  • How can I remove the names of message from the toolbar and easily return to the Inbox

    New user of Thunderbird. When I open a message and then act on it (e.g. delete), I want to go back to the Inbox immediately. But my initial configuration displays short titles for all messages in my Inbox. So I have to scroll to the left through them to get to the Inbox tab. How can I avoid this? Thanks to anyone who can help!

    I see that you choose to open several emails in new tabs, so when read and delete one, the focus moves to the next tab email open as it is expected that you still want to read the selected open emails.

    Is there was only an email open in a tab and you have chosen to remove it, then you could be automatically brought back to the Inbox view.

    If the first tab on the left side is visible, you can click it and it will show the folder that you selected last.

    If the first tab is not visible due to many tabs open, you will see a left pointing chevron at the beginning of the tabs on the left side. Left click and hold left pointing arrow chevon and the display of the tab will pass quickly to the right, exposing the tabs on the left. You can then select the first tab.

    To scroll the tabs open the keyboard. Hold down the 'Ctrl' key and press the 'Tab '.

    You mention that you are a new user of Thunderbird. There are several ways to display an open mail. If you enable the "Message" pane, a simple click on the email list will open and display the email in the 'Message' pane that is displayed below the list. Note that this is not a 'Preview '; It's an open email. This method is a quick way of reading emails. If the email is long you can always use double click to open in a tab 'Icon in the Menu' > 'Options' > 'Layout' > select "Message Pane" or toggle the view with the F8 key.

    You can also reverse the list, so that all new messages appear at the top, this means that you don't need to scroll to them when the message pane is activated. Click on the "column heading Date to reverse the order of the list.
