I've encountered a few default passwords;

'Password'
'password'
'Admin'
'Administrator'
or simply leave it blank.

This will be different if you are in an environment controlled by Group Policy Settings.

Windows 7 disables the "administrator" userid and it should be left disabled. The first user is automatically a member of the administrators group and should be used as your local admin userid. Then make a new user (in whatever group you wish) for regular users.

So (a) the answer to your question is: there is not a default admin password - it does not exist; and (b) it will be worth your while to use Windows 7 as designed as that is likely the way of future operating systems as well.

People have gotten themselves royally screwed up by making the first user a domain user. No admin to fall back on. So, by all means, devise a local userid and password (company_admin; password) uniform across the network. I do that with all client Windows 7 machines and it works (a) just like before and (b) very well. There is no need to enable the default admin id. ... Thinkpads_User

Sorry, was unsure of the question, thanks Thinkpads_User!

Very good security implementation too, no worse feeling than when a domain user fails and no fallback.
