With the help of the vista local security policy setting, the administrator account in windows vista can be revealed. Here is how:-

Go to Control Panel and click on System and Maintenance link, follow by Administrator Tools at the bottom.

Now click on Local Security Policy applet in the Administrator Tools window.

On the left pane of Local Security Policy MMC, expand Security Settings then expand Local Policies.

Now click on Security Options branch and Double click on Accounts: administrator account status setting, then select Enabled radio button on Local Security Setting tab of Properties window.

Click on OK and Log off, switch user of restart your computer to logon with activated Administrator account.

Thats it !!

Enabling administrator account is useful if you want the convenient of using computer without distraction of User Account Control,or simply want to have a super user account as a ?backdoor? backup that able to reset your password if forgotten.
