When you install Windows 7, you will be asked to create a user account. If you are an advanced user that only wants to use the administrator account, unfortunately you can’t because it has already been created by default but disabled. The administrator account is disabled by default in Windows 7 for more security so that viruses cannot use that account by default to propagate and make changes on your system. Basically there are no difference between the Administrator account or any accounts with admin privileges but as a general rule like in Linux, one should never use simply use root account for any tasks unless necessary.
However if you prefer to just have one administrator account, you will have to enable the built-in administrator account, log in to the account and then delete the other admin account that you created when installing Windows 7.
1. Click the Windows 7 Start menu orb button and type cmd at the Search programs and files bar and hit enter.
2. At the command prompt, type net user administrator /active:yes
If you see the message The command complete successfully, it means that the Administrator account has been activated. Now go to Control Panel > User Accounts > Manage Accounts, you will see Administrator in the list. You can create a password, change the picture or even change the account name.
Website login credentials can be stolen by hackers, social engineering or even by malicious tools such as keyloggers. A carefully planned hacker wouldn’t want to get detected and tries to stay in control of the account or computer as long as possible so that he can gather as much private information as possible about the user. This means that even if the hacker knows the password, they wouldn’t change them so that you wouldn’t suspect a thing. They would continue to snoop on your email, bank accounts, transactions and etc.
