    Try net user Administrator /active <yourpersonalpassword> <ENTER>. This should active the account.

    Could you inform us what message you got when you tried
    Code:
    net user administrator /active:yes
    within an Administrator Command Prompt?


    Depending on your edition:

    You may also try In the Run command box, type lusrmgr.msc and then press Enter key In the left-pane, click Users folder to see various account names in the middle pane.
    Double-click on the Administrator entry in the middle pane to open its properties.
    Under the General tab, uncheck the option labelled Account is disabled, and then click Apply button to enable the built-in admin account.
    Try Switching to the Administrator account or to the sign in screen.

    the difference of an admin account to "the" built-in Administrator account is just a policy rule (secpol.msc) that says that built-in admin won't ask for UAC and start application with highest security token.

    Already tried the lusrmgr.msc and the secpol.msc, nothing changed.

    "net user administrator /active:yes" on an admin cmd say that the command worked, but even after rebooting, i don't have the super admin, looks like I'll try on a fresh install. Thank you everyone.

    you don't want to use the SYSTEM account, a lot of normal functions don't work with it, its only meant to be used by the operating system. There are a few ways to use it though.

    you can get explorer to run under SYSTEM but it is very broken

    If I recall correctly, TrustedInstaller doesn't have very many privileges, what it does have is pre-loaded ACL permissions on areas normal users do not. Still, I find it easier to just grant yourself permissions to those areas on an as needed basis.
