  • Hi,

    No. You can remove the user account from Administrators group. Do not remove all the user accounts from Administrators group, we need at least one enabled administrator account on the system.

    1. Open Microsoft Management Console by clicking the Start button, typing mmc into the Search box, and then pressing ENTER.‌   If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    2. In the left pane of Microsoft Management Console, click Local Users and Groups.

    3. Double-click the Groups folder.

    4. Double-click the Administrators group.

    5. Click the user account and click remove button.

    6. Then click OK.
