    You'll need to logon with the created account first and re-enable the Administrator account I would assume.

      Camel is right on the money there.

      Its disabled as standard now to try and stop people using the built in administor account.

      Its Best Prac to right click and "run as" when ever you need to do something as the built in admin. I believe the only exculsion to this is some exchange and SQL maintenance requires you to log on as the Built in, but do not quote me on that (I have yet to find any time I have to Log on, Run as always works for me).

        Re: Administrator account

        Personally I would leave it Disabled and rename the Admin account because Administrator and Admin are the 2 most common names that are being used to try and hack my Server. Using a different name makes it just that wee bit harder for them. Make sure you have a very strong password or passphrase on your administration account.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2
