  1. Need to edit in command. Keep getting access is denied as an administrator.


    I accidentally set my exe files to run as “%1”%1 and as of such no exe files will run at all. I was able to open command by changing it to a .com. However whenever I try to edit the reg back to exefile I get access is denied. I am the only account on the computer and am running as administrator with full control. I don’t know what to do from here

    :)

    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.

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

    Can't send screen shot. Entering Command prompt(admin) get "Do you want this app..." box with NO as the only choice. I have tried everything I've found on the net to enable the built in administrative account to no avail. Running Win10 OS build: 16299.125.
    HELP!
