  2. Removing/changing Administrator

    Hi Mike,

    We are sorry to hear about the loss.

    Before assisting we would like to know:

    The account you are speaking about is it a Microsoft Administrator Account or a Local Administrator Account?


    • If it is a Microsoft Administrator Account then Password cannot be removed.

    • In order to remove the Password Protection for a Local Administrator Account you would need to Enable the Build In Administrator Account. This will help you in removing the Password.

    • To Enable the Build In Administrator Account Please follow the below steps:

    As per the Description you have mentioned as you see an error as "change settings are currently unavailable." We would request you to help us with the Screenshot of this error.

    Please follow the steps provided in the below link to send a Screen shot in Microsoft Community:

    How to include a screenshot in your post

    The above steps should be helpful to you, if the issue still persist, then to write back to us and we will be happy to assist you.

    Thank you.

    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
