Picture of Unblock CMD at school and become the administrator!
In this Instructable you will learn how to unblock cmd at your school or workplace and become the administrator. Sounds impossible but its not

What you need for this Instructable:

-Time (You don't a lot but you still it lol)
- A computer, Windows XP is recommended although this can work on Vista if your administrator doesn't think much about computer security
- limited user account or guest account (Obviously you won't be trying this if your already the Administrator. . .)

NOTICE: If your CMD is already unblocked skip to step 4
Disclaimer: I will not take resposablility for any damage this Instructable might cause. If you follow me correctly nothing should happen but you never no. . .proceed at your own risk lol

Step 1: Unblocking CMD, your gateway into becoming the administrator, 2 ways

Picture of Unblocking CMD, your gateway into becoming the administrator, 2 ways
OK, at most school and even workplaces CMD(.exe) I usually blocked. CMD stands for something called Command Prompt. This is your gateway as I like to call it into becoming the administrator. There are two versions I know of, the newest is called CMD.exe and the older one is called Both are useful, it's just that you can do more in general on CMD.exe. OK, way#1 to unblock your computer's command prompt.
1. Open 'Notepad' (Windows Run "Notepad" or Open up your start menu -> Accessories-> Notepad) thats all I can think of for now but there's probably more ways. . .
2. Write inside the notepad file exactly what you see here (paste this if you want):


that probably won't work because your administrator probably atleast knows something as simple as that so let get a 'little more complicated':

@echo off

That last one probably won't work on vista though. . .
If these two possibilities don't work then, sorry I'm out of ideas. . .These two though are the only two that I've used and tried at schools and they seem to work the best. . .Remember either of these works! Do not include both commands in the same notepad file. . .

mine says access denied error 5 occerd
hmmmmm then this means your admin actually knows something about computer security xD ummmmm try typing gpedit.msc in notepad and save it with the extenstion .bat and try going from there. There's not much you can do if your administrator actually knows a thing or two on computer sequrity soo, i wish you luck lol
I guess this wont work for a High school then considering we have a pretty up to date Administrator who knew that I was using CMD to access his files and other stuff leading me to Computer Management from here we could edit anything on our network :P ..except unblock Websites and Unprotected sites.. You have to be the administrator to get that to work so maybe this might help me play games at school... Yes my school blocks games and any other site which includes fun stuff AKA Youtube. A site was blocked for the Purpose of E-Learning. Wow. Apparently we arn't allowed to Learn at school ¬_¬

type if you want youtube and for any other site instead of / type /

I have a program that i can go on blocked sites and if you say the admin knows everything then shut down his computer by going to cmd and type shutdown -i and press enter and a lite windows pops up and press browse and choose a computer and press okay and choose a reason and press okay. if you want you can shutdown all the computers in the school who is using the network. (Dont use your account because you might get caught. That why i used this random kid account.
wait, what exactly do you do from gpedit.msc? im not sure what comes before and after that

in the first or second step, you need to create a notepad text program, and what Sparkythehappygirafe is trying to say, is that instead of start, or one of the other things, you could try typing in: gpedit.msc, and then save the program as a ".bat" file, and so on!
im through to the "local group policy editor" but what do i do from there?

Also, this is not gonna actually get you admin. It's gonna say "System error 5 access denied." (Like some people already said). You can't just create admin out of no admin. That's not how security works.

I really don't want to say this but you are kinda (not gonna say it).

This does absolutely nothing except open a useless CMD with NO ADMIN RIGHTS. It's so easy anyway. Create a new batch file, type "cmd" in it and it's done. Seriously.

If you actually want admin (+ a detention probably) you can get yourself a Linux live CD and actually do some real hacking.

Otherwise, don't act like you're so smart. You have no (insert generic swear here) clue what you're talking about.

It's easier to regain admin rights with a WinPE boot CD such as PCUnlocker ( ). Just boot your target machine from the CD and it allows you to either remove admin password or promote a standard/limited account to administrator. It's also worth a try!

Error 5 means you need to be an admin to change stuff, a simple but more time consuming task would be to use ARP poisoning with Cain (google it). At my school they had an un-encrypted webmail service the teachers used and when they logged in I got their passwords :D
Took me about two hours (over a week) to collect about 50 passwords.
(btw if you over-do it you will crash the server)
If no success, use Windows XP mode in windows 7.

o my gosh. it was very comlicated i tried this in school with lots of pressure about gettin coughht
if the admins found out that ive done this, can they suspend me? anyways is there some way i can hide the file that ive saved so the admins can't see it, so they won't find out? oh and ty ;)
Not only can they punish you, they can criminally charge you...with TERRORISM. Seriously. A school is a government facility, so don't just don't. Besides, why the heck do you even need parental control?
oh and will they not see the acc if i do it on my school laptop?
I'm not sure... this codeing gives you all admin rights on that computer, but not on the network. I think they won't see it on your school laptop. They would have to log on to your laptop and change accounts, and 'manage' the cpu icon on their desktop.

no, I'm pretty sure that they won't see it.
they can suspend you, and they will if they find out. yes there is a way to hide the account that you have made, by deleting it when you are done.

just type: net user "(the name that you have made up)" \delete

Is there a possibility you could be found out? Because, I don't really know what would happen if I did this,,,, =.= I probably seem like a complete wuss. :3
