Ok, due to popular demand, Imgo add actual screenshots, use spellcheck and try to add helpful tips. So all you nagging *** get off my back!!!!
In this instructable, youu'l learn how to unblock command prompt, crete and change accounts, and change other people's passwords without them knowing!!!
You can even give youreself administrative privaleges...
Step 1: How to Get CMD Prompt Working
1.If you have access to the run feature (in the start menu or press windows button-r), you should be able to access command prompt by typing CMD into the dialouge box (pictured below). You are lucky and you can skip the next step. cya on the next step, bye!
2. If you are unlucky, and you cannot find the run feature in the start meny, you're account is probably not blessed with administrative privalages. But we can fix that...
Open notepad (which is in the start menu under accessories)
Then type in "Command.com" (whithout the quotation marks). After that, type on a new line (by pressing the enter key once) "pause" (once again with out the quotation marks).
Now for the tricky part. Click the save button under the file drop-down tab in the top left hand corner of the window. a menu should come up that allows you to browse files.Name the file as follows:
(The .bat means that it is a batch file for those noobs that are curious. Batch files are the language of command prompt.)
Save the file in a convieneant and easy to access place (I used my desktop)You should now have a fully functional showtcut to access the Command Prompt Interface. If this doesnt work, leave me a comment or message and i'l get back to you as soon as possible.
Step 2: Making a New Account
First we'l start by making a new account. Open notepad and type
"net user ______ <-(new username) _______<-(new username)/add"
(once again, WITHOUT the quotation marks)
Logout or switch user on you're computer so the welcome screen comes up. The new user's profile icon should now be present, along with the passwore and default avatar picture.
You now have a clean, un-screwed-up profile to play with.
(sorry i couldnt get an image on this one)
Step 3: Giving Yourself ADMIN Privaleges
so, open command prompt and type:
"net local group administrator _______<-(you're account's name) /add"
(For the lastime, DONT type this with the quotation marks).
It should run through some crap then say command compplete!.
After that, log back into you're account and enjoy andministrative privlages!
Step 4: Changeing Account Passwords
"net user _____<-(username) *<-Shift-8)"
(should I even bother telling you NOT to add the quotation marks)
Type the new password in, and type it in again to confirm it and you're set!
Step 5: Thats All for Now, Folks
You do this at you're own risk of being caught! if you screw up you're computer, or get in some serious trouble, I CANNOT AND WIL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE!!!
Since the only reason I researched how 2 do this is to be able to run halo in my profile, and from experience, the effects seem to be temporary, I ended up going back into the administrative account and retype the command.
Also, you can look forward to seeing my new instructable that im gonna get round to making on the holidays. AND YES, IT WILL HAVE SCREENSHOTS!!!!
