Bypass Admin access through guest Account in windows 10

Open command prompt and check windows user account status using “whoami” command.

Account name is “joe” and account status is ‘DefaultAccount’ which is a non-administrator account type.

Try changing administrator using the ’net user’ command. You will see an error ‘Access is denied’

Now download “CVE-2017-0213_x64” from here and unzip in your PC. Go to the folder and you can find the .exe file, double click on it to run it.

The moment you double click on it, it will automatically open a new command prompt with administrator privileges.

Use ‘net user’ command to change the administrator account password. Message ‘The command completed successfully’ will appear. You have now successfully changed the administrator accounts password.

    Thanks… unfortunately, you first have to gain admin privileges before you can make it work. I think the latest version of Windows patched up the holes in their previous OS.

    Yeah, didn’t work for me. Chrome, Firefox, opera, Microsoft edge and Internet explorer all blocked it. I managed to download it by creating a macro in Microsoft Word that allowed me to access the web through Bing but Windows Defender said it might contain a virus and refused to run it.
