Unhide the Administrator Account in XP Pro

Jul 05, 2008 @ 04:59 pm by HackingManual

As you may already know the administrator is a built in account in Windows that is hidden and has no password set by default. To bring it out of hiding follow these steps:

Click Start
Click Run
Type REGEDIT into the run box

Local Machine/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version/Winlogon/Special Accounts/User List

Create a new DWORD Value
Name it Administrator
Give it a value of 1

Now go into the control panel and set a password for this account. Now you should see Administrator in the Users section of the control panel as well as when you log on.
