I recently installed a piece of software that required me to disconnect my Windows 7 pc from our local domain. On rebooting the PC I tried to login with the local administrator account (the only local account) and got the message that the account was disabled (forgot that by default it was disabled). I'm unable to login with my domain account obviously. I tried starting the PC with the installation disc, getting to a command prompt and typing "net user administrator /active:yes" which I saw as a solution a number of different places but although it says "command completed successfully" on reboot, while attempting to login to the administrator account, I still get the message that the account is disabled. How do I enable the account without having to wipe out the whole install?
