    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:
      Code:
      net user test /del

  3. Admin account corrupted

    Hi Joshua.

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.

    I suggest you enter into safe mode and enable built-in administrator and check.

    Step 1: Start computer in safe mode.


    • Type Settings in the search box on the desktop, select
      Settings.

    • Here select Change pc settings and then
      General.

    • Scroll down to Advanced startup, click
      Restart now.

    • Click on Troubleshoot, Advanced options, and Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart, select
      Safe mode and then press Enter.

    Step 2: Enable Built-in administrator.


    • Open the Task manager. Here’s a tip: Press
      CTRL + Shift + ESC.

    • Click File >
      Run New Task.

    • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges

    • Type CMD.

    • Type the following command and hit
      Enter:

    • net user administrator /active: yes
      (Check for the spaces)
    6. Now log off from the current user and try to login to the administrator account that is enabled.

    Note: Please follow the same steps and type
    net user administrator /active: no to disable admin account after the troubleshooting is done.

    Step 3: Create a new user account in Safe Mode and give admin privileges to the new account.

    Create a new user account

    After creating new user account, press Windows key, type
    Mange your account
    and hit Enter. Click on Family
    and other users
    and select the newly created account. Now change the account type to
    Administrator.
