How to Disable / Delete the Administrator Account from Windows 7 Computers

Picture of How to Disable / Delete the Administrator Account from Windows 7 Computers
First, open "All Programs" in the "Start Menu" and then click on "Accessories".
Look for "Command Prompt" and right click it, then select "Run as administrator"
Click on "Yes" if it asks you, Do you want the following program to make changes to your computer?
Once command prompt opens, type: net user administrator /active:no to disable the administrator account
net user administrator [/DELETE] to delete the administrator account

Once you've typed in one of the following, hit enter. If you did the process correctly, it should say "The command has completed successfully".

Mines computer said Access Denied!!! What to do next?

make sure you run as a admin :]

I ran as admin and it said, "'netuseradministrator' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.'"

What does that mean? I can't access the administrator account and I can't create a new one. When ever I do access the administrator account, it goes to a white screen and I can't do anything. I'm under an 'Standard User' and I just want to delete everything and I'm having no lucky whatsoever.

Hi, the error you're getting is caused by the fact that cmd prompt cannot find the right path to execute this command

write in cmd prompt: cd c:/windows/system32 then try again

make sure you run as a admin :]

Did you make sure you ran it as Administrator?

I have my main user account with administrator privileges and a spurious administrator account that I want to delete. I am afraid to follow these instructions lest I eliminate the wrong one. Will it just eliminate the one titled "administrator?"

This does not work! The moment you want to open the command prompt "as administrator" it asks you the administrator password - which is the password you actually want to disable!!!

I was attempting to delete a profile when explorer stopped and restarted. The profile is gone in "Manage Another Account", but the folder under Users for that user is still there as are numerous registry entries. How do I continue the user account removal process?
