Windows - Administrator account has been disabled

December 2016


I'm unable to login to Windows under normal mode, I'm getting the following error message:
  • "Your account has been disabled. please see your system administrator"
  • I can only access Windows under the Safe-Mode.


Go "Safe Mode" and follow these instructions.
  • Right click on "My Computer"-----> click on "Manage"--> "Computer Management" Window will be opened.
  • At left side double click on "Local Users and Groups" ----> under it, click on "Users"---->Now at the right click you can find all the users.
  • Now select your user and right click on it----->Select "Properties"---->then uncheck the checkbox "Account is disabled". (Note: if account is locked option is also selected, then uncheck that option also)
  • Then Click on OK--->close the computer management window
  • Restart your PC and try to login in normal mode.

Thanks to jack4rall for this tip.
