    All accounts with administrator rights disabled?!?!

    #$&*(##$@#$!!!

    I feel like I just got rolled up in a carpet, tossed into a trunk and driven off a cliff at high velocity.

    I was doing my normal security lock down in windows 7 enterprise by setting all user accounts to the "users" group and enabling the admin account for elevated access and installation rights. After I restarted the machine windows loaded with a disabled administrator account and a roster of user level accounts. The result is... a computer with 0 access to the administrator account.

    Anyone here shared my pain on this one yet?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
