Unable to run programs needing Admin rights.

Q. I can't run certain aspects of MaxxTraxx because the original Administrator user has been deleted. How can I regain it?


To enable the default Administrator account, perform the steps below:

1. Click Start and type CMD in the Start search box.
2. Right click on CMD in the list and click on "Run as administrator".
3. Type the following command at the DOS prompt: net user administrator /active:yes. Press Enter.


Restart the computer and you should see an "Administrator" account. Log into Windows as the Administrator, and try those programs again.
