    Lost my administrator account


    I have the administrator account disabled in Windows 8.
    Now I get no rights.
    How to re-enable it?

    Hello Lacobo, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You might see if you may be able to do OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to enable the built-in Administrator account at boot, sign in to it, then enable the other admistrator account that you disabled.

    Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable in Windows 8

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Looks like you locked yourself out, and may need to do a clean install of Windows 8.
