The account called "Administrator" on Vista and later m$ OS's is always disabled by default, and it should stay that way. You should rather create another account that is a member of the Admin group, but also that account shouldn't be used in normal use. You should always use a standard account for everything, and if something requires elevated rights, a UAC popup will show up asking you for the account name and password you created that is a member of the Admin group.
