    Administrator account keeps getting disabled


    So, i wanted to install something in C:/Program Filesx86 andi didn't have permission, so i went on and granted my user every permission possible and nothing, then tried logging into Administrator account first time after a windows reset and didn't have it enabled, i went to Local Users and Groups and I tried to enable it, but with no succes, because, guess what, i didn't have permission, now, I didn't have permission to open anything as an administrator, i tried enabling the account through cmd and i had same problem, so i went into Troubleshoot Windows Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Open Command Prompt and it worked, I booted into safe mode and deleted the account with peoblems and i said 'Voila' amd procceded to start windows normally, and it said that the account has been disabled, and did the same thing and i still have the error, now i am in a loop.

    And windows button and Search bar don't work, so i can only open a few apps through Run and Windows + X and Powershell.


    Thanks!

    :)

  2. i disable my administrator account

    Here is the correct way to do such things:

    • Create a spare admin account, same as you ask the locksmith to cut a spare house key.
    • Test the spare account, same as you would test the spare house key.
    • Promote your account to admin level.
    • Test your account.
    • Disable the Administrator account.
    By taking Step 5 as the first step, you painted yourself into a corner. You must now ask a friend to create a bootable Windows Repair flash disk, using the command RecoveryDrive.exe. Use it to boot your machine into Windows Repair Mode, then use System Restore
    to set Windows back to a point then the Administrator account was active.

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account


    Hello,
    Unfortunately I have the same issue as Dabz from upgrading win7 to win10.
    I've tried opening settings using all the suggested methods and it will not load using my account with Administrator access nor the built-in Administrator profile. I also tried other methods not listed such as using Run. Control panel is just a stepping stone to add users in Settings.
    I'm also having explorer.exe issues, which I believe is preventing Settings from loading.
    Using cmd (Admin) I successfully created a new user profile [and granted admin access also using cmd (Admin)], however win10 will not allow this account to log on. win10 does not list this new user within control panel but it does in the start menu. win10 will not allow to log in or switch to the new account via the start menu either.
    I can access settings in Safe Mode but this will not allow me to create a new account.
    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers

    2. Type Net user administrator /active:no
