3 Ways to Enable the Built-In Windows 7 Administrator Account

In Windows 7, like Windows Vista, when you install the operating system, you are asked to enter a user name which will be the primary local user that will use this system.
Like in Windows Vista, in Windows 7 the built-in Administrator's account is disabled by default. Furthermore, this account is not associated with any password.
The new user which is created during the installation is configured to be a member of the built-in Administrators group, and in fact, can be used for any management task. That use is in fact equivalent by all means with the original built-in Administrator account.
However, there may be situations where one would like to use the built-in Administrator account instead of that "new" user. One of these might be when you're building a system for cloning purposes, and would like all cloned machines to be able to use the built-in Administrator's account.
Note that since that account does NOT have a password, enabling it without properly setting a password for that account will open a serious security opening on your system!
There are basically 2 easy methods of enabling the built-in Administrator's account and 1 advanced method.

Method #1 - Using the Local Users and Groups Snap-in

To enable the built-in Administrator's account by using the Local Users and Groups snap-in please follow these steps:
Open Local Users and Groups. You can do so by typing lusrmgr.msc in the Start search box or in the Run command and pressing ENTER. Or, you could open Computer Management by right-clicking Computer in the Start menu and selecting Manage.
Expand System Tools > Local  Users and Groups > Users.
Right-click the Administrator account and select "Set Password".
In the"Set Password for Administrator" click "Proceed".
In the"Set Password for Administrator" enter the Administrator's desired password twice, and click "Ok".
Next, enable the Administrator's account. Right-click the Administrator's account and select "Properties".
Un-chek the "Account is disabled" check-box. Click on the "Ok" button.
Administrator's account is now enabled and configured with a password.

Method #2 - From the Command Prompt

To enable the built-in Administrator's account by using the Command Prompt  please follow these steps:
1. Click Start and type CMD, then press Enter. It is best to run the Command Prompt as an Administrator. To do so, right-click CMD and select "Run as Administrator".
When prompted to allow the Command Processor to run, click on "Yes".
BTW, you can also hover over the CMD line and press CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER to invoke the "Run as Administrator" shortcut.
In the Command Prompt window, type:
net user
Note how the Administrator account is there, yet the new user account has not been yet created.
To set the Administrator's account password:
net user *
Then enter the required password and confirm it.
To enable the Administrator's account:
net user administrator /active:yes

Method #3 (Advanced Users) - During the Installation Process

There is a 3rd method which advanced users can use. This method can be used during the installation process itself.
During the installation, after being prompted to configure the new user account, you will be able to set the new account's password.
At that phase, press SHIFT and F10 keys together. A Command Prompt window will appear.
In the Command Prompt window, type:
net user
Note how the Administrator account is there, yet the new user account has not been yet created.
To set the Administrator's account password:
net user *

Then enter the required password and confirm it.
To enable the Administrator's accoun:
net user administrator /active:yes
Close the Command Prompt window and continue with the installation process.
If you log off you will now see the Administrator's account as a valid logon option.

Beware of Fake Rapidshare sitesfi

rapidshare-phishingRapidshare is the most popular file hosting service on web and its premium user accounts are growing day by day so, Hackers  have now started a new way to steal your accounts. Rapidshare Phishing, for those of you that don’t know, is a fake Rapidshare web site. It is made to steal your account information and to steal your credit card (or any payment method) if you decide to sign up for a premium account.

Identification of Genuine Webpage

The URL contains “https://”, not “http://” Most information is transmitted in clear text so that anyone can read it. HTTPS defines a method for encrypting messages so only the recipient can read it. HTTPS stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (or with SSL – Secure Socket Layer) and represents a TCP/IP protocol that is used by World Wide Web servers and Web browsers to transfer and display hypermedia documents securely across the Internet.
The digital certificate.
1.For Firefox users, the whole address bar turns yellow and a small lock appears in the right of it, and in the right bottom of the window.
2.For Opera users, in the address bar appears a yellow space wich contains a small lock and then the name of the certificate: “RapidShare AG (CH)”
3.For Internet Explorer users, in the right bottom of the there’s a small yellow lock which shows us that a certificate is present.
4.For any other browsers, search for a small lock either in the address bar, either at the bottom of the window.
Hackers protect (hide) their real URL (identity) behind something else; they generally prefer URl protection services like lix.in so, beware from it.
TIP: If your on your own private computer, try to stay logged in all the time and have “direct downloads” enabled in your account options. That way if you go to a Rapidshare link page and it asks you to put in your login info after you click “premium” choice to download, it is a fake.
