Admin Account Trouble
I am currently running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and this is the trouble that Im running into:
1. When I try and run the command prompt as an admin by hitting ctrl+shift+enter and typing net user administrator /active:yes I get this response:
System Error 5 has occurred
Access is denied.
I get the same error when I right click command prompt and run as administrator and enter the same command as above.
2. When I go into Control Panel - User Accounts and Family Safety - User Accounts - Change your Account Type to change my account from Standard User to Administrator, the change doesnt take effect.
3. When I go into Control Panel - User Accounts and Family Safety - User Accounts - Manage Accounts - Create New Account and type the username as "test" and set it to be an Administrator account, I get this error:
The specified account name is not valid, because account names cannot contain the following characters: /\":;|<>+=,?*
Please type a different name.
Someone please help! Im simply trying to get elevated priviledges so that I may utilize the windows backup and restore utility.
