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

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

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

When i typed it into notepad and saved it I opened it and it said it was not recognized as a command

my school became my laptops administrator, know how i can get rid of it aside from asking them?

Hi when setting up CMD I get all of it to work but when trying to enter anything it just closes out

I can't open cmd and even settings as they are heavily blocked by the admin. Also when I open the .bat file with "" and "pause" it says "" is not a recognized command. What should I do?

My computer says that the command prompt is disabled by administrator

What do I do now?

After you open a notepad and type in "", don't save the file as "CMD.Bat", save it as "command.bat". Try that and it should work.

I have a little trick for school's and/or work places that block some of the required things. It will require a bit of prep but its really easy.

First you will need to create a CD or DVD containing a Linux based operating system (OSX won't work to the best of my knowledge), eg: Ubuntu. The Reason i say CD or DVD is because most computers boot to the Disk by default, where usb flash drives require you to goto setup (BIOS) and change the boot order (The BIOS Setup is usually blocked/disabled). Boot from the CD or DVD, run the os in Test/Live CD mode, goto the drive that contains windows, goto c:\windows\system32, find cmd.exe, make a copy, then find sethc.exe and rename it just in case you want to restore it eg: sethc1.exe, then rename the cmd.exe copy to sethc.exe (sethc.exe is the sticky keys prompt when you press shift five time's) once that is done boot back into windows, when you are on the login screen press shift five times and CMD should come up with admin right's, then type: net user Administrator * , then it should ask you to input a password, put in a password you will remember (keep in mind it wont show the characters typed in), then login, it will probably say something about it being disabled, no worry's, in CMD just type: net user Administrator /Active:yes , Then try login with the Administrator account, it should be working. But you may want to have admin rights on your account (it will only take affect on that computer if it is on a domain, the domain is only require if the same account is on all the pc's, otherwise if it is stored on the computer just dont put in the domain part), just type: net localgroup Administrators "domain\username" /add , eg: net localgroup Administrators "\bobstevens" /add , the username is what you put in to login to your account, the domain WILL NOT be the same unless you goto Mount Maunganui College, and Bob Stevens is not my real name incase you are wondering, oh and make sure before you leave, do the command you did above but just with /delete instead of /add , if you want to find out your schools domain it is usually the schools main website just with out http://www. eg:

I Hope this helped in some way, there are other was without prep but with the prep it is faster

Hi all

Noob here.... Just checking on a few things regarding changing admin access on a local machine which is part of a domain.

Can the IT guys see that you've changed the admin account password? No doubt they have a rotating admin account password on a group policy.

Just create a new admin account, or administer your account. When you're done, remove admin privlages.

it flashed the command prompt and then it closed. so close

thats when your school blocks it. Try adding @echo on, before you type in the rest.

I wasn't able to create another account. It said

System Error 5 has occurred.

Access is denied.

1 reply

that means the school has found the leak and has stopped you from being able to do that command. What works for me is typing "net user" without quotes as soon as I open the command prompt. It is a bug that makes you able to do commands only an admin could do. Please tell me if it works.

Good point... school computers are real sumguns to hack...

type following into notepad instead:

@echo off

break off


Title Command Prompt



set /p CMD=C:\Windows\System32>



goto cmd

Hope this helps
