  1. I cant delete the administrator account thats inbuilt with windows 10 home edition.


    I am learning new things and realised i cant make any security changes, i am testing my own .lua script injector, when i download it, it says its detected as a virus, so i went ahead and tried to turn off real-time protection and it says that i dont have the permission to change the security settings, more precisely "this setting is managed by your administrator". i tried to delete the account but it doesnt allow me to. It also clearly states that i am also an administrator, and also i had an inbuilt norton antivirus thing, then the free trial ended so i uninstalled it.

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown I cant delete the administrator account thats inbuilt with windows 10 home edition. :(

  4. I cant delete the administrator account thats inbuilt with windows 10 home edition.

    Upgrade to Windows 10 removed administrator account named "Administrator"

    Hi Lonna,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    1) Currently are on Windows 7 or Windows 10?

    2) If you are on Windows 7, are you able to see the "Administrator" account in the PC?

    If you are on Windows 10, try to follow the below steps and check.

    I suggest you to perform Safe Mode with Networking and check if you’re able to login using your Microsoft account.

    Method 1: Safe mode.

    Please follow below steps:


      • Click on power button at left bottom corner, press and hold
        Shift key and click on Restart.

      • Click on Troubleshoot.

      • Click on Advanced options.

      • Click on Startup Settings.

      • Click on Restart.

      • Login to Microsoft Account and create a new administrator account.
    If you’re not able to login using Microsoft account then refer to below steps and check if it helps.

    Method 2:
    Activate Inbuilt Administrator Account.

    Follow the below steps:


      • Click on power button at left bottom corner, press and hold
        Shift key and click on Restart.

      • Click on Troubleshoot.

      • Click on Advanced options.

      • Click on Command Prompt and enter following command.

        net user Administrator /active:yes
    Now reboot your system and login to inbuilt admin account and try to reset password for other account. Once you reset password login to other account and to deactivate inbuilt admin account enter following command in elevated command prompt.

    net user Administrator /active:no



    Hope these information helps, please get back to us for future support, we’ll be glad to assist you further.

    Thank you.
