Got Built-In Administrator Enabled With Password
Followed the instructions I linked above enabling the Built-In Administrator from the command prompt. Assigned a password and was good to go.
Now the fun begins in setting up myself as a user with Standard Rights deciding what programs I will give myself access to and figuring out how to give myself access to these programs without having to enter the Built-In Administrator password, which is quite long, every time I want to run a program.
Found one website with instructions on this and will start to work on it when I have some time.
This project is bringing back some memories from those days when I was a Network Administrator. I don't recall which version of Windows we were using but as I recall it was probably before Windows 98 and Windows 98 SE.
P.S. One of the main reasons that I started this project is because my regular password is not as long or as complex as it should be to be running with Administrator Rights. So I wanted to enable the Built-In Administrator and give it a very long and complex password.
By doing this I can log in as a user with Standard Rights without having to type in a very long and complex password and still have access to Administrator Rights when I need with a much longer and more complex password.
So if someone steals my password they will have limited access to what they can run on my computer.
Of course the password that I use to log into Windows is not the same as any of the passwords that I use on the Net.
