  1. Admin account not working


    Hello,


    I had an admin account on my PC and I wanted to create a new admin account so I created a new one and gave admin privileges. After that, I tried to log in with the new account but it didn't work. I thought it had something to do with the old account so I deleted the old account, but the new one still didn't work.


    Now I am left with the situation that I can't log in as an admin to my PC as it does no allow me. So incidentally, I am left with no admin account on the PC, and can't install anything, even updates.

    I have tried using the Recovery mode with net administrator command, but it says you are not an admin. My laptop is an ACER laptop and when I try to use ACER Care Center app, if doesn't open as it also needs administrator access.


    MS support asked me to update windows using the media creation app but it also needs admin access. It leaves me clueless as to how to solve this issue.

    Any support will be much appreciated. Thanks.

    :)

    Remove account

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:

    How to change admin user account name?

    ah so main admin account is 'wizzle' which is what I am currently on
    I make another account called 'wizzle2' (with admin rights)
    I sign out of 'wizzle' and sign into 'wizzle2'.
    And once signed into 'wizzle2', then I do the command prompt step and find the SID for 'wizzle' that is listed and go from there?

    Admin account not working

    RDP to non-admin account not working


    I can RDP to an account that is an admin account but not to a non-admin account.
    I have read to check the users and make sure the appropriate accounts have been added to the user list but the option to view or edit the user list is missing from my settings window:

    Admin account not working [​IMG]

    [Advanced Button:]

    Admin account not working [​IMG]

    is there something I can check/change in the reg editor or in group policies or something to make this appear or perhaps just to enable it directly for that account?
    For reference this appears the same if I'm logged in as admin or as non-admin. (have to give admin privileges anyway to see this window in the first place)
    Thanks to anyone who can help
