    How can I disable admin rights for an account?


    I have a pc with multiple accounts, of which two have admin rights. One of the admin accounts is mine. Is there any way to remove the admin rights from the second account without deleting the account? If this is not possible, is there any way to block or prevent certain admins from installing software or apps on the pc? Thanks in advance.

    :)

  3. Vista: How to give FULL admin rights to other accounts???

    I've done this a year ago. I found a way to give a normal account full admin rights without enabling the built-in admin. But now, after 90 minutes of searchin and tryin I can't find a way to disable ALL ennoying messages, only UAC messages are disabled.

    I currently have UAC disabled but I still get fucking ennoying pop-ups for admin approval. Can someone please tell me how to disable these pop-ups before I trow my laptop out the window?

    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?
