In this Instructable I am going to tell you how to become the SYSTEM user on Windows!
Note: Doesn't work on Vista!
Q: Now, what IS that SYSTEM user?
A: The SYSTEM user is the most powerful user on your computer. It can go in ALL System folders, for example.
To put it easily: the SYSTEM user can do everything on the computer! Reason: A control system doesn't make any options that can't be changed/modified/watched. The SYSTEM user is there for things that anyone else can't do!
Now to begin with the tutorial!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: First Code for CMD!
First you have to open up CMD, ant enter this:
at [current time+ 2 min.] /interactive "cmd.exe"
remove the [ and ]!
include the " in the code!
This places a new job at the time you inserted.
When your PC's clock reaches this time, the job will be set to work!
Step 2: Second Step With Task Management!
When the time has come, your cmd.exe has changed into svchost.exe!
This is the SYSTEM's Command Prompt!
When your SYSTEM, this will be your Command Prompt.
Enter Task Management.
Go to processes, and quit explorer.exe .
explorer.exe is your desktop.
When you quit it, you can't use your desktop, and it will be empty.
But don't worry, we're going to fix that right away!
Step 3: Third Step With the Last Codes!
Now go back to svchost and type: cd..
now type: explorer.exe
This opens up your desktop again!
You can now use it again (thank god).
If you can't, restart your pc.
Congratulations! You now are SYSTEM user!
Your name has also temporarily changed to SYSTEM!
If you shut down or restart your pc, everything will reset, so you still log in with your own username!
