Windows 7: Win7 Home premium not detected properly?

Win7 Home premium not detected properly?

Hello all!

I performed a rollback on my laptop to factory settings by using the provided tools of win7 to do so, as the backup was extracted from a recovery partition. Windows 7 Home Premium was provided by factory default as my OS. The system information of my machine clearly shows this is the version installed.
all seemed to go fine until I started to set up user profiles. I wanted to check the built-in administrator settings throught the local users and groups manager (typing lusrmgr.msc on the start menu search) and the manager shows on its window a message reporting that my machine is not running Wndows 7 Home Premium, also says that this complement (the manager) cannot be used with my current version of Windows. Due to this situation I can't manage account properties.

Any ideas on solving this situation will be highly appreciated, and thanks in advance for any help provided!

Windows 10 Pro x64 x3, Ubuntu

The message you are receiving would be consistent with running win7 Home Premium.

lusrmgr.msc is only available in Pro and above

lusrmgr.msc is not available in that particular SKU - you need to use the standard user management controls from the control panel, to control user creation/modification

Open a command prompt in administrator mode by right-clicking and choosing “Run as administrator” (or use the Ctrl+Shift+Enter shortcut from the search box).

Now type the following command:

net user administrator

That'll give you the detailed status including whether the account is active, password policy etc. To enable this account, type:

net user administrator /active:yes

To disable, type:

net user administrator /active:no
