    Admin Account Disabled


    Hi All, I have a issues in where I connected my laptop to my customers domain to assist with a few issues. Upon leaving the domain and going back to a workgroup I realised that their server had applied a group policy that disabled by local admin account. I am now left with my user account that is not elevated enough to re-join the domain or to add/remove apps etc. I am unable to enable the local admin or promote my user account to admin group. I have no restore points and struggling to boot from USB to run a WINPE etc.

    Any useful advice would be gratefully accepted, thanks.

    :)

  3. Use admin account with admin rights disabled

    To prevent unwanted changes by my self or others do I want to create a guest account which I will use as my main account. I did and on one computer windows can even load one of the profiles. On the computer where I can create a guest account which works
    do I need to setup a lot of programs which are not available for the guest (like my browser or my onedrive linked to the email on the admin account ect). So I thought, is it possible to use the admin account but with admin rights disabled and when you need
    admin right you re-enter the password?

    (Or does somebody has an idea how I can use the onedrive linked to the admin account and how I can assign already installed programs to guest accounts?)

    Greetings,

    Vincent

    Admin Account Disabled

    Welcome to the forum. The only way really is to login as a domain admin unless they changed the password for local admin

    I am glad that the problem is fixed.

    It occurs to me that [whilst I know nothing about domains] since you now have your working Admin account & a spare Admin account you might want to make a system image then connect to that domain again.
    • I suspect that the domain might only mess up Admin accounts that you are currently logged into at the time & leave your other Admin accounts alone.
    • If this is true then you could routinely make a temporary [sacrificial] Admin account to connect with so that your normal accounts were kept safe.

    All the best,
    Denis
