Disabling administrator account in windows 7.


Recommended Posts


Currently on my laptop i have a standard user account which i use all the time and there is also the administrator account.Could anybody please tell me how i can disable the admin account please.?

Upon browsing the internet ive used the elevated command prompt command "net user administrator /active:no."

But upon reboot i notice the administrator icon is still there at the log on screen.

Basically what i want to do is just have my standard user account running and the admin account disabled.

Any help please.?

No, you should not disable the administrator account. At some future point, you may run into a situation where that account is really needed (like a catastrophe).

Just continue to login with the standard user account, especially when you will be on the internet.

There's an old saying,

If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it.

You appear to be trying a lot of things on your own that likely you need to learn more about.

I'd suggest doing some deeper reading at http://computerhaven.com/forum/

and on the Microsoft answers forum http://answers.micro...s_7-performance
