How do i disable the administrator account.

Im currently using a standard user account.Ive tried the elevated command prompt net user administrator/active:no command and it said the command had completed successfully.But i can still access the administrator account at log on.
Any ideas please how i can disable the admin account and just have the standard user account running?
Many thanks.

...You will be in a world of hurt if you disable the only administrator account on your computer...In order to elevate with a standard user account you need an administrator account available if you remove it, you will be locked out of your computer!

Oh he can use it, but he'll basically have to hack it or reinstall if he wishes to do anythng that requires an Administrator, such as install most programs.

You can disable the Administrator account, but it wouldn't be recommended.
