Windows "Administrator" account for Network login

By pl312 ·
Hi all,

I am an IT student and following around an admin for work experience lately and now I've explored my home networking and LAN and using \\Computername to login and do the basic networking sharing etc. stuff but the thing is I need the person's account to login e.g. Bob password1234.

The admin guy I was learning off said I can use the Administrator created by Windows to login after I set it all up but I do not see the Administrator account no more in vista or 7. Is it still available? how do you usually do admin work/control over a computer without having a personal account on that computer?

thanks


Also, is it safe to have a user account without any password? because if anyone can join into my router they can access the shared files without having to login?

We, you're not the Admin, unless you set it up.

If they are your systems, you are the admin. Use the admin account. See also Nimmo's post.

Don't be logging into people's accounts where you don't belong, admin or not. Yeah, of course you need the password.

"Also, is it safe to have a user account without any password?"

Your answer:

"because if anyone can join into my router they can access the shared files without having to login?"

Remove question mark at end and replace with appropriate punctuation.

Assuming that you have shares, and not protected with passwords.
