Basically saying any activated hidden admin account will be deactivated again and only happens when there are other admin accounts active on the pc. There will be a patch released late January.

This issue shouldn't affect many users as activating the hidden admin account usually isn't done. It's been hidden by default since windows 7.

I remember having to use the administrator account in safe mode in XP quite a few times due to malware infections.

I remember just using the administrator account back in the Windows 2000 days.

I don't remember why I had a copy of it, but probably because Windows ME was trash.
