Super administrator account? There is no such thing. You can disable UAC so that it won't annoy you every 2 minutes. But there is no super account that will gain you unworldly powers..

Go to,

Start Menu-->All Programs-->Administrative Tools-->Computer Management

And then on the left pane, go to Local Users and Groups

Select Users and you can see Administrator there. Right click and select the properties.



See that the Account is disabled not checked

You can set the password by doing a right click in the Administrator. (Set Password option)

And then you should do something to show the Administrator account in the login, I can give you that once am back home Laughing

Administrator account shows up immidiately once you enable the account Laughing

I had to use it once when Vista told me that my profile was corrupted. The only way to fix it was as the administrator ... which my corrupted account was. It wouldn't accept my password when I used my sons profile but using the "Super" account I was able to fix my profile using some instructions I found on the net ... funnily enough, not on the Microsoft website which said (pretty much) that I should delete the profile and start again.
