    In Computer Management (right click on My Computer, choose Manage) and Local Users and Groups, expand and choose Users. Click on Administrator, right click and choose properties. Uncheck the disable bit and set a password.

    Tried the solution, works nicely although I think it is very crude. Nevertheless it's probably the best I can ask for. Thanks very much for your time and help, much appreciated.
