  3. I need help, I have a similar issue with windows 7 on my PC. I can’t make the modifications on the computer management system, Its giving me Access denied message. I tried system restore and changing account type but I still have the message saying “do you want to allow the following….” with the grey yes button. I read other forum that suggested this line on CMD net user administrator/ active:yes but it doesn’t work. Could really use a help 🙁

  4. Thank you so much for this thread! I have been trying to fix this problem on my computer for days. Thank you so much!!!!!!!

  5. After a entered the shutdown /r in command prompt and hit enter it gave me a long list of things I don’t understand. What does this mean?

  6. Everything went fine but when I came to the part of deleting the old account (wonder which account it was) ….it threw up the old message that inbuilt account cannot be deleted. It’s a wacky loop. Now I am back to where it all started. 🙁

  7. Thank you. My issue was that I stupidly got rid of my admin rights to my only account. Other sites would only give partial information or incorrect. Your information was thorough and I was finally able to give myself back administrator access.

  8. Hello, I have problem. I change the name of the admin into RNC, but after logging, I’ve been login as temporary profile, whenever I run cmd as admin, UAC will pop out and I have to enter username and password but my problem is that I have one account. Please help
