    Lio,

    You can't delete the built-in Administrator account. Instead you can only disable it as in the tutorial while logged in another administrator account (ex: LioSeven).

    I've tried it but I don't have any possibility to disable.

    I also tried to enter in the administrator account (OverLio) but from there I only can delete MY REAL account, LioSeven and same from LioSeven.
    It's crazy!! I can delete my account (till 4 hours ago my ONLY account, with all my programs ..... ) but I cannot delete a new account just created.
    I'm going to try a restore point but because I've tried to install and uninstall so many time that damned LSS, I can only restore till 3 days ago

    and so I cannot solve any problem
    Thanks and... if you have some good idea :) I'm only waiting for any help

    Have you logged out of the built-in Administrator account, logged into your LioSeven administrator acccount, then try to disabled the built-in Administrator account using step 2 in OPTION TWO of the tutorial?

    Did you type the command in a elevated (right click "Run as administrator") command prompt?

    I just correct my previous post when I've seen that I was not in Elevated Command Prompt.

    And PLEASE, don't tell me to reinstall all.
    I'm now finishing to install my new system with all the program and till I have the problem with Lightscribe, all works like a charm and I was going to make the image of all the perfect installation to have my backup copy.
    It's only for this reason I don't have the backup: I need to have all setting up, with my Photoshop, all the plugins, all the link and so on.........

    I try with the elevated prompt

    Now I've disabled (I hope and I'll see when I login next time).
    But even I've solved this problem, I have the first problem: I cannot install the Lightscribe drive
    But for now, THANKSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    You're most welcome Lio. I hope you will be able to get the Lightscribe drive issue sorted soon as well.

    Hello,
    I've followed the steps in OPTION TWO of this tutorial, since my OS is Windows 7 Home Basic.
    1) Opened an elevated command prompt, as described in the indicated topic;
    2) When I typed the command net user administrator /active:yes , the system returned the message:

    The user name could not be found

    For more help, type NET HELPMSG 2221.


    So, after a lot of searching, I've discovered that the problem was that my system language is Brazilian Portuguese (I'm Brazilian, by the way). So, changing the command line to net user administrador /active:yes it worked as well as it should. Note that the word "administrator" was placed by "administrador", its translating in Portuguese. I think that it could help for the ones with systems in other languages too.

    Best Regards,
