    net user administrator /active:no keeps saying access denied.

    Hi Rebekah,

    It's possible that you're not using an elevated command prompt, causing the Access Denied error. We suggest following these steps to properly disable the built-in administrator account:

    • Right-click the Start button.
    • Choose Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Copy and paste net user Administrator /active:no and press
      Enter
      . If the command isn't successful, please post a screenshot so that we can study it further.

    Let us know if you're able to hide the administrator account after following these steps.

  3. I'm administrator but am getting denied access to everything that requires an administrative account

    ==============

    Your case might fall into two scenario: Either you are not able to log-on into the Administrative account at all or the other case would be that you are able to log-in into your administrator account, but when you are trying to access any file using that administrator account then you are given the message as 'Access Denied'. Don't worry, if yours' is the second case, then you would be able to access all your files similar to the time before reinstalling Windows.

    If the first case is true where you cannot login to any of your administrator account, then you need to reinstall windows from scratch.

    If the second case is true, where you are able to log-in to your administrator account, but you are denied the permission to access that item, you can refer to this section to take control of your PCs files:

    1.) Move to the location where your files are stored in your PC for which you are given the messsage as 'Access Denied' an select any file orr folder.

    2.) Now, when right click that file, select properties and move to security tab, then click on advanced button at the bottom - another windows will open with all the tabs on it.

    3.) Firstly click on permissions tab -> click continue (if permission is asked then click on continue) -> move to Add -> Advanced -> click Find Now -> select your Administrator User Name from the drop-down list & then click O.K. twice.

    4.) An another window will open. Just click on allow button (for all) and click O.K twice.

    5.) then Click on the owner tab and by clicking on the edit tab change the owner to 'XYZ' (- this is your account name with administrative rights) -> click O.K twice (or thrice) to move close all the properties box.

    Issue with my computer

    ================

    My system falls under scenario 2 where I can able to log-in to my administrator account but still getting permission denied message whenever I tried to access "Services".

    It works till step 2. But in step, my system is showing only view option. I couldn't able to add or edit administrator username. Can you please help?

    Access denied on windows 7

    My friend copied a folder for me through a pendrive and I could copy all of the files
    except an application file(exe.) saying that "file access denied"and I require to get permission from the file owner or contact the administrator.

    I read the tips on changing ownership but this whole folder does not have a "security" tab in the properties menu. The same goes to the application file itself.

    So what can I do now?*Confused I'm administrator but am getting denied access to certain files that requires an... :confused:
    Its frustrating.
