Secure Windows® 7
A system administrator has the full rights to perform changes in a computer. If you are using the personal system, then the automatic login will be as the administrator of the system. In all other cases, you have to provide proper password to access the system. You need to activate the admin rights in the system. To start this you need to open the 'My Computer' option and select the hard disk drive. You will see the 'Security' tab there and select 'Change permissions' in the 'Advanced' tab. Select the user account you want to give total control in Windows 7 and click the 'Edit' button and tick the check box labeled 'Total Control' and press 'OK.' After this the system will be under control of the administrator.
