    Hi, all. I am using vista home basic, PC is from HP.

    I have used "net user administrator active: yes"command line to enable
    administrator account to install some software, but now I want to disable
    the account to ensure the security of sytem, but failed!

    After I input "net user administrator active: no" using command line running
    as admin, I found the account of Admin has been protected by password in the
    control panel, and I NEVER set up any password on this computer yet. Then I
    restarted the computer, the DAMNED admin account is still there and I have
    to log onto it with password! If not, I have to log onto another user to
    delete the password!

    What can I do to disable the admin account? Where is the admin password
    from? What is it?

    The most secure action is to set up a strong password of admin, and then run
    the OS every time as a common user? But now the number of svchost.exe
    processes has increased up to 15! That slowed down the computer.---I just
    want to go back to the disabled admin account status..

  2. what account ( account admin or different account ) you used to disable
    account admin?

    if you used account admin to disable account admin then try to used
    different account with administrator priviledge to disable that admin account.
