First there should be a recovery partition on the hard drive, where you can restore your laptop to the factory state.

Anyway, on Windows 7, by default, you can't logon as administrator, because administrators login is disabled.
Therefore, you need to login as an ordinary user.

You can log in as the administrator. How would you setup the other user accounts otherwise.

Why didn't you make the restore disks?

Toshiba (from mid-2007) no longer supply recovery disks with new laptops. They do provide a hidden recovery partition called the HDD Recovery Utility. This is accessed by pressing and holding the 0 (zero) key on the keyboard and then pressing the computer's power switch. This process is described in How to use the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility.

You can order Toshiba Recovery disks from https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/land...

You can subsequently use the Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator (supplied with Vista Toshibas) to create recovery disks. Toshiba also have a Toshiba Product Recovery Forum.

you can run user account management or other programs and services with administrator rights, but you can't logon to the windows 7 system as administrator, cause the administrator account is disabled by default.

If you have a windows 7 machine, check the administrator account settings.

I beg to differ with you. I have a log in for my normal account with administrative privileges and also the default administrator account.

I can use the switch user and log in using the default account.

If you go to manage> local users and groups> users. You should see the default administrator account there. Click on it and un-tick the Account is disabled box.

Perhaps it matters how you install. I never use the default method. I always use custom. Perhaps I set it up that way manually.

I restate, how would you setup any user account that has any administrator privileges without doing it from the default account?

Yes, I'm aware of being able to enable the administrator account, but it's disabled by default.

I think, most user do have default configuration and therefore, administrator account is disabled by default.

So if you haven't enabled the administrator account manually and lost the password for the normal user account, you got a problem, don't you?

To create new users, rightclick Computer, choose Manage, click local users and groups in the left pane, click users, rightclick in the right pane and choose new user.

You can't grant any administrator privileges that way. Booting to Safe mode should bring up the administrator account too.

I can.
I simply add the user to the administrators group.
That way, mentioned above, I also can enable the user administrator for logon.
