creating hidden User account with administrative privileges using Batch file or Script RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to get a batch file or script which would automate the task of hiding one account with administrative privileges on a large numbver of computers so that it does not appear on the logon screen. However it should be possible to remotely login to the computer using the same login account and push patches and updates.

    It is worth noting that out of a large number of computers, some have Windows XP, some have Vista, while others have Windows 7 loaded on them. So the batch file or script proposed should be able to work on all the three operating systems. If separate batch files/ script are required for different operating systems then all the scripts / batch files may be advised.

    The environment does not have a Active Directory or Domain arrangement.
