Vista admin CMD command?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I remember seeing a tweak guide for Vista here a while ago, and I cannot seem to find it =/

either way, there's only one thing I really need from it. I remember that there was this one CMD command the guide listed that made Vista treat your account like a real admin rather than giving you "Access is denied" messages when you try to change ownership of files and folders.

does anyone know what the command is or where I can find it?
thanks

You can simply type in the search "cmd.exe" and right click "Run as admin" and you'll have the rights

Type 'cmd' in the run box and hit 'ctrl+shift+enter' instead of only 'enter'.

You could use the "SYSTEM" User if it is still enabled by Vista.

http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1107620/how_to_login_to_the_hidden_windows_xp_system_user_account_win/ is a video that should show you how to do it.

Not sure what all this other junk is around the video...

nonono, there was a CMD command that I saw in the tweak guide that was once posted on this site that made vista treat you like an admin no matter what you did. it was a command that set some value from 0 to 1 and vista stopped giving me trouble after. I recently reformatted my PC because I upgraded from a dual core to a quad and vista would only see 2/4 cores. so I reinstalled vista and now I just need that command and I'm set.

Do you mean this?

Code:
net user administrator /active:yes

Are you speaking of UAC ?

Also Vista does have an inbuilt Admin account which is pretty much a superuser and does have access to everything. However I do not reccomend you use it. If your system attracts a virus/malware then it can wreak havok using that account as it has access to everything. A Normal admin account would be a better idea.
