It is not like other releases of Windows; Vista does not automatically create an Administrator account during installation. Using a non-administrator account will prevent a Windows user from accidentally deleting operating system folder, files, and registry information, and prevent any Malware infecting the computer from doing the same. However, if you really need to run as an Administrator, you can easily activate the built-in Administrator account yourself.

How to create a Vista Administrator Account

  • 1. From the "Start menu", select "Control Panel".
  • 2. Double-click "User Accounts", and then click "Manage User Accounts".
  • 3. Click "Create new account". Enter a name for the account, and then click "Next".
  • 4. Click "Computer administrator", and then click "Create Account".

How to change Vista password if you have another Administrator account

  • 2. Select the account which password you forgot and want to reset.
  • 3. Choose "Remove the password" or "Create the password" from left menu.
  • 4. Confirm as the windows guides you.
