You can do this in any version of Vista. However, caution is the keyword
here and you should not use the built-in administrator account other than on
a temporary basis.


Go to Start and type cmd

In the programs list, right click on CMD and select Run As Administrator.

In the command prompt window, type the following command.

net user administrator /active:yes

(Note the spaces and colon)

Press Enter.

Log off of your user account and you will see the Administrator account on
the Welcome screen. This account will not have a password associated with
it. The first thing you need to do is go into Control Panel / User Accounts
and create a strong password for this account.

You don't need to do it for XP.

Erm. I really can't see the benefit of doing this. It's easy to create Administrator accounts using the graphical user interface

Silly! When you are installing an application on vista and it gives you say Error 1308 it means that you don't have admin rights. Now with Vista there is a hidden admin that you will need to unlock. In Vista Business and Ultimate it's easy to fix since all you need to do is go under computer management and go enable the admin account. With Home and below you can't and this is the only way to do it.
