    So i activated the defaulted administrator account and put a password on it. Couple months later I deactivated the account before removing the password. I tried removing the password but it didn't let me, so I deactivated it. Now whenever I try to run something as administrator, it keeps asking for a password but there's no box for me to type the password in. Therefore I cant run anything as administrator.

    Is there a work around to this, or can Microsoft release a update to fix this?

    Hi.

    No, Microsoft doesn't issue patches for user error, unfortunately.

    Use another Administrator-privileged account to re-active the Administrator account. Set a good password for it.
