How Do You Enable Administrator in Home Basic
I've been able to do this fine in Ultimate, but need to stay with Home
Basic on my HP laptop because the laptop has figerprint reader and Ultimate
will not allow upgrade.

In Ultimate I can right click on My Computer and enable the administrator
account in users and groups. Vista Home Basic does not have this feature.

TIA

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

Press Enter

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.
