Hi All,

The strangest thing has happened and I don't know exaclty when or why but now I just try to resolve it. I have a Windows 7 client with only one enabled user (the others are administrator and guest and are disabled) and this user has no admin rights. Therefore I cannot enable the others user accounts and cannot install anymore software.

Is it possible in some way to activate my administrator account or add admin rights to the already active user account?
