Windows 7: Administrator Password


03 Jan 2010   #1

Administrator Password

Hello everybody,
I am a very happy user from Windows7, but the only thing, that I hate, are the Administrator rights. Before Windows7 I had WinXp and I could install games or some other things, but now at Windows 7 I nearly can not do anything. Windows 7 always want to have an Aministrator Passwort. I would be very glad If someone could tell me some tips, that I can get Amin-rights.
I heard of Ophcrack and downloaded it for WinVista but there was not any succes.
If someone could help me, would be very nice!
Greetings PrinceOfPersia

Ps:Sorry for my bad English, I am German and searching for help here, because here are many users.

Turn off UAC and restart your PC.
User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

Or enable build-in Administrator account and use it.
Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable

From security point of view both of them are insecure.
But it's your system, and your choice.

Windows 7 is designed that way to keep you protected from malware, viruses and alike etc.. It is best that you spend the time setting up your computer and working with the need for the Administrator Password. Once you get your computer completely setup you will find the need for the Administrator Password is almost nonexistent. However if you wish to bypass the security you can launch a CMD Prompt "Run as Administrator" enter the password. Then at the CMD Prompt type

net user Administrator /active:yes
net user Administrator Pa$$w0rd

You may pick any password for Pa$$w0rd.

Then you can log off and log on as Administrator and will not be asked for the Administrator Password when installing software etc.
