Disabled built in administrator RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had one administrator on my system say sandy.

    Now I wanted to restrict my account so nobody could use it to perform the operation that could be harmful for the system so i changed it to the standard user , I could do that easily 'coz i'm an admin. But now if I try to do anything which requires admin privileges I cant. 'coz my built in admin account is disabled and I've no other admin on my system..

    Isnt this a flaw in the system. System should at least give some warning that you have no active admin account. I dint realize that built-in admin is disabled by default till i face this problem..

    reinstalling OS is not an option. Is there any solution to solve the problem described above. Can recovery console be of any use??
