I am using Windows 7 Ultimate. I have deleted my Administrator password and now if I want to install something, it is asking for Administrator rights. So can anyone please guide me how to recover a deleted administrator account (not password) without formatting the system.

      You can recover, only if you took data back-up. Else there may be some paid services available.

    Hello, the following link will show you three different ways of accomplishing what you want. One of them(last one) does not apply to you but the first two do:

  • Alan Wade

    If you just want to install something try right clicking on the install file and selecting Run As Admin.
    Can you tell us what it is you want to install.

  • Rizwan Saudagar

    You cannot delete administrator account as it is default. Put enable in your administator which you get it henceforth.

    • Shashidhar Medi

    • Panji Hitam

      how you delete it?

  • GrrGrrr

    Windows 7 has a built-in Administrator account that has no password and is hidden by default. Like all other administrator accounts, it has full control of the system; for you to use it, however, it must be the only remaining administrator account, and you must start the computer in Safe Mode.

    • art

      hi I already tried doing that by opening it in safe mode with command prompt however when I try doing it again the default admin account is asking me for password which I didnt provide before.I tried providing a blank password but it would just inform me that my password is incorrect.could you pleasehelp me with it.Thanks...
