Windows 7: Get rid of Administrator Log in

Get rid of Administrator Log in

When I first got Windows 7 I used the original Administrator page. A friend came over, played with my computer, and now I'm left with the original and my own administrator log in. I have no idea where the other came from. I can't delete the one it came with obviously, but I'm not about deleting the one I currently use. It's been mine and has all my information saved to it. I didn't see the two logins as a problem until I ran Spybot and it said I couldn't remove the problem unless an administrator. I had to log in the other and get rid of it. I don't want this problem. Is there a way maybe he copied the account and made a new one (the one I always use)? Any way I can easily transfer all of my things. This is a pain in my butt and I want to rid myself of the hassle without clearing the computer like I used to have to.

Hello hthrdnbr, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I believe the Spybot issue is that you may have needed to right click on the Spybot shortcut, and click on Run as administrator instead for it to be able to.

If you mean that you would like to disable the built-in "Administrator" account, then as long as your user account is an administrator type, then you should be able to use the tutorial below to disable it.

Hope this helps,
