How to Enable or Disable the Windows 7 Built-in Administrator Account




Information
Standard user (Users) - The standard account can help protect your computer by preventing users from making changes that affect everyone who uses the computer, such as deleting files that are required for the computer to work. We recommend creating a standard account for each user. When you are logged on to Windows with a standard account, you can do almost anything that you can do with an administrator account, but if you want to do something that affects other users of the computer, such as installing software or changing security settings, Windows might ask you with a UAC prompt to provide a password for an administrator account.

The default administrator account that is created during the installation of Windows 7, or setup already for you on a OEM (ex: Dell) computer, will have complete access to the computer and can make any desired changes. To help make the computer more secure, this administrator account may be asked with a UAC prompt to provide their password or confirmation before making changes that affect other users.

The built-in Administrator account is an account that has full access and permission on the computer, and will not be prompted by UAC.

How do I configure System Restore in Windows 7?

System Restore helps you restore your computer's system files to an point back in time. It helps you undo system changes to your computer without affecting your personal data. It is worthy to note that System restore affects Windows system files, programs, registry values, scripts, batch files, and other types of executables. System Restore in Windows 7 and Vista works a bit differently than it does in Windows XP in that it uses the Shadow Copy feature in which it creates a snapshot of your drive at a certain point of time.


The System Restore in Windows 7 needs a minimum of 300 MB of the drive space of the hard drive, by a general rule. In Windows XP however, the minimum size required is 200 MB. Depending on the size of the partition it is usually a good idea to either increase or decrease the allocated space for system restore. Here is how this is done:
To access System Restore Configuration, Click on Start and then right click on Computer and then select Properties from the context menu. 






Then click on System Protection to display the System Restore configuration menu.

From here, you can control the way System Restore will work or behave in Windows 7. It will furthermore display the drives that are currently configured to use System Restore and those that are not. 


You can select a drive or partition and click on the Configure button to get detailed configuration information about it. This includes the percentage that is currently allocated for System Restore in MBs along with the current usage.

It is possible to change the percentage that Windows can allocate for system protection to free up disk space for other data, simply by dragging the slider above. By default it is 4% in Windows 7. It is also possible to delete previous system restore points and to change the restore settings. 


By default System Restore can save system settings and previous versions of files. You can however choose to restore only the previous versions of files as shown in the figure above.


You can also selectively turn System Restore off for a specific drive or partition. This was also possible in Windows XP
