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".

I actually found this method to work (look in the comments of the video because there is a minor adjustment that must be done to the usb for this to work) Hopefully this actually helps you all.

Didn't work. As soon as I right-clicked and Run as Administrator, a window pops up asking for the Administrator password.

My PC is asking for administrator permissions, when i run cmd prompt as administrator

I do not know what has happened to my PC, suddenly it started asking
adminstrators password if i try to install, uninstall or change network
settings.

But i did not set any password.

My PC is not under my control.

When i run anything as administrator, its asking password.

Please help me, I need to do lot of work in that PC.

Thanking you,
