How to hack you're computer's account using command pronpt.This stuff is really interesting and EVIL!!!


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

Picture of How to Get CMD Prompt Working

There are two options here:

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 "" (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).
Got that?

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

Now, once you have notepad up and running, you can stert hacking!!!

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

this step is the easiest really, and it can grant you the ability to run whatever programs you want and install whater you want on you're computer, the way it should be.

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

Picture of Changeing Account Passwords

To change someone else's password, simply type this in:

"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

Thats it... for now.


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!!!!

If you are having any problems, just leave a comment or email

GoWolves11 (author)EnderG52017-05-27

Notepad is only on a Windows computer, though there is a command prompt called crosh(Ctrl - Alt- T) on a chromebook. It doesn't run batch though.

-Need Help

So our school just got laptops for everyone and i would like to make an administrator account on mine. It's basically impossible to open the command prompt on it due to a program on the computer called bitlocker. Is it possible to open the command prompt (and then make myself an administrative account) with a flash drive?

Beastmodekilled (author)newt692017-04-03

You do this by looking it up on youtube, it is possible to give admin using what is built in on a computer

TJO3 (author)newt692017-04-01

The easiest way to do this is to do this. 1) get a flash drive with Linux on it 2) plug your flash drive into the computer 3) start your computer and keep pressing enter while it turns on and it should go into a weird startup 3) click start with flash drive, it should start with linux 4) delete your sethc.exe file in system32 5) rename your cmd to sethc.exe and place it in your system32 6) restart your computer 7) when you get to the login screen press the shift key 5 times and a cmd prompt will pop up 8) type in the commands to add a user to the local drive and give yourself admin 9) login on the local domain (if your not sure what it is click how to sign in with a different domain below the password box and it will show you) 10) enjoy ;)

IsaakS (author)newt692017-02-23

You can open it by using run.bat files it's kinde tricky though you can make yourself admin I use this method. You can find most of the codes online. Good luck

RefusionG (author)newt692017-01-31

using F12+Backspace+F8, book up into safe mode and select safe mode with cmd, then login, if your school uses a domain, do (domainname)\(name)

then you will boot up with command prompt!

This doesnt work...

GabeB22 (author)2016-11-07

i did the thing to get admin "net user blah blah blah" and i got this

"System Error 5

Access Denied". I am currently running windows 10, but the school computers run windows 7, and both get the same message. Help!

IsaakS (author)GabeB222017-02-23

You need admin rights to do that. The only way is trough a run.bat code or sonething with f8key and some otber things I don't know. The run.bat id kinde tricky but after a few code combinations it wil work you can find differend codes lnline.

_Aura_ (author)2016-03-09

Not working, System error 5 occured (You need admin to run this command) But i'm doing this FOR administrator. They have blocked USB so i cant do anything with that either. Help?

anonyh4ck3r (author)_Aura_2017-02-17

have you tried windows+r then cmd if not that way when you are loading up before you type in password to login to computer hit cntl+alt+del run task manager then run cmd.bat or cmd.exe and it should load up the command prompt from there you can net user add admin create new password for the computer and then run cmd as an admin to do the commands you need or if you do tree you can find the file that has the blocker and edit or remove it for your entertainment just be careful it can be caught onto if your in the connection range to that internet there is a website out there to create a proxy and it runs in the computer as a text document and will not create any wonders of what your doing unless they do tree they will find it otherwise its undetectable and hidden I did it for a friend and he now has proxy that turns it into just an ip so he can get to the sites thru the ip

JoelW32 (author)_Aura_2016-03-15

Do you know if the USB ports are soft or hard blocked?

if its softblocked simply use a Linux bootstick to switch utilman.exe with Cmd.exe

after that u`ll be to start up a commandshell in the startup screen,

just hit the (not sure how its called since im running a german version) easy facilitating button and voilà u got a CMD running even with SYSTEM rights. That means u got more rights than the administrator account (obvioulsy only on your local system) u should be able to use all the commands u want.

I never tried it btw, but u could try to get a copy of the SAM file and gain some Password hashes ^^ not sure if it works though. But if u try it please say if it worked :b

and yes, u all probably reconized my bad english, im sorry for that its not my native language please correct my mistakes when u got time to. Thanks and good luck my friend :) Happy Hunting

yes and i the school blocks the usb you can use a disk. or just swich utilman or sethc to cmd

Xxsoulsp3riorxX. (author)IHacks2017-01-11

have you tried shutting down ur pc and then hold the power button and then reboot it back up and it will so a screen which would say "would u like to start windows normally" click enter and then press "ctrl alt delete" and then it would say would u like to "repiar ur pc" press yes and when it start back up don't press anything in till it says "want to restore" "press cancel"

and let it do its thing and then a nover window will open saying rester or cancel press the little arrow and then scroll down and open the text file go to computer then d drive and then go to windows and then system32 and then go to where is says file type and go to the opcen all and then look for "Utilman" and put a 1 so it should look like this "Utilman1" and then find the cmd.exe and copy and paste it and then rename it to Utilman and then press the cross and then cross again and then press finish and then u will have a camand prop

Im closely monaterd by them, they are constantly looking at my computer, im forced to sit next to the teacher and as such i cant boot from a usb because they'll freak the hell out, also they have something called imperio, this basically logs everything i do. so inorder to do anything id have to remove that. Any idea n how to go about removing imperio?

IHacks (author)_Aura_2016-12-14

okay there is 2 ways u can do this one get a admin account or second find a glitch. thees 2 work the same your basically just going to kill the process. i reccomed getting a admin ac an then just remove from ur account but ofc ur trying to get admin so glitch it. first find out what ur school uses to watch ur screen. second so some reserch and try to kill it if all out fails yolo and get admin and kill it thats what i did. btw as soon as you login into a admin account it sends them alerts that why u wanna give ur own school ac admin

Don't forget to say Kimberly referred you, I'm sure he'll help.

This came up

isaacs66 (author)2016-11-16

Ok since im at school and my schools computers are like maximum security prison so i cant do any thing, so that means i cant open the command prompt (not even through .bat) So this is sadly useless to me, also if you guys are going to do anything such as shutting down all the computers at once i recommend to doing it on someone else account because they can track you down. I got caught and now im closely monitored by teachers. good luck

IHacks (author)isaacs662016-12-14
