Remove local administrator account. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to remove the local administrator account on a workstation.
    For the moment all the accounts in our network are disabled, but our internal audit asks to remove them. My collegues think it is not possible for some reason, but no one knows why ?

    Thank you for your post!

    The local administrator account is disabled by default when you have other administrator account existing. When no other administrator existed, this build-in administrator will be activated. It can't be deleted.
