Re: How Do You Enable Administrator in Home Basic
Go to Start and type cmd.exe In the results, right click cmd.exe and
select the Run As Administrator option.
In the command window, type the following command.
net user administrator /active:yes
This will enable the built-in administrator account. If this si the first
time you have used this account, you should create a password for the
account in Control Panel/User Accounts.
