Open command shell (Win+R -> cmd) and execute the following:

net user ALEX yourpassword /add
net localgroup Administrators ALEX /add
net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited

This creates a new user, puts him into Administrators group and turns off account password expiry.

make sure you open an elevated command shell (right click and runas Administrator)

goyal's solutions isn't valid for 2008r2.

justa has it right :-

net localgroup administrators USERNAME /add

There is absolutely no difference in which way you create the account.

copy the User Account which is Administrator and paste it. It will ask for the User Name and Password, you supply those and check mark on "Change Password on Firtst Logon and supply the user with that User name and password.
The Admin credentials will be automatically copied to the user account.
