Windows 7: Run As administrator, no prompt for username and password ? wtf

Run As administrator, no prompt for username and password ? wtf

Hi guys

Im trying to activate the administrator account, which requires administrative access however when trying to do a Run As on cmd It says "to continue, type and administrator password, and then click yes. Though there is no username and password prompt box appearing so all i can do is click "no".

Same goes for doing anything that requires administrative rights to do, there is never a prompt for a username and password just the option of clicking "no"

What is going on?

Use safe mode!!!

Why bother offering to Run As administrator if the administrator account is disabled and then not tell the user why!!

Aye i did try these methods but to enable the administrator account it should prompt for administrative credentials. However the popup box to enter these never appears!
