1. Log on as Administrator--> or as a user with administrator permissions.

2. Right-click My Computer--> and then click Manage.

3. In the left pane--> expand the Local Users and Groups--> and then click Users.

4. In the right pane--> double-click the Administrator account.

5. On the General tab--> select the Account is disabled check box--> and then click OK.

6. Quit the Computer Management console. The new setting takes effect the next time you attempt to log on to this computer.
