    1. Open the command prompt with elevated privileges by clicking the Start orb, All Programs, Accessories, right-click Command Prompt and then select Run as administrator.
    2. Type net user administrator /active:yes and then press Enter.
    3. Restart or log off your computer and log in as Administrator.

  • I am assuming that the newly activated Administrator account will not have a password.

    Or will it be the same password that gets entered along with the User name when Windows installation is finished and ready for first use?
