Re: missing Admin account

O.K.

I am replying to my own post because i figured it out and this might
help other users

To turn on this 'super' administrator account, type cmd in the search
box WAIT don't hit enter! cmd will appear at top. Rt click on it to 'run
as administrator'.
To enable this account, type this command & hit
Enter:
Net user administrator /active:yes To disable this
account, type this command & hit Enter:
Net user administrator /active:no If you decide need
a password for the administrator's account that you are going to
activate or if you are unable to activate it with a blank password:
Net user administrator P@$$w0rd
Net user administrator activate:yes
Hit enter. You will get a message: The command completed
successfully.
