How to Enable Built-in Administrator Account?

1.   Ever wondered where is the Administrator account that used to be seen in Xp days has gone now...unseen in VISTA and WIN7  ?

2.  There is a way out through editing GPEDIT.MSC also...but found this veri simple...a single line command at c:\ goes like this :

Firstly, open a command prompt in administrator mode by right-clicking and choosing “Run as administrator”.

Secondly,type the following command:

net user administrator /active:yes

thats it...ur screen should say " The command completed Successfully"

3.  You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out, and you’ll now see the Administrator account as a choice.this works both for VISTA and Win 7.
