Administrator Account - Advise Please


D

Dermot

I am running XP Pro
During the intallation I did not set an Administrator password.
When I right click on the command prompt icon and select "Run as" and choose
the Administrator option leaving the password blank..... it report can't log
on.

Question
How can I log to the administrator account when the password is blank?

AFAIK, you can't. Set an administrator password. That's a simple fix :)

Thanks for the reply

Since posting.... I worked out I could cancel the welcome screen.....which
gives the older logon screen where I can logon as Administrator with blank
password
I'll take your advice and set a password though.

Thanks Again
