Windows 10 comes with a built-in Administrator account that is disabled by default during setup, and it appears Microsoft hopes to keep it away.

In accordance with a blog post by Microsoft Taiwan. Upgrading in the April 2018 Update to the October 2018 update will deactivate the Administrator account.

This occurs during the update process. When there are already existing user account with Administrator privileges. But that I expect this could cause issues when users delete this kind of account. Expecting the Administrator accounts to still be valid.

    This is not a new problem. This has happened from time to time in the past updates, especially when I was in the Insider fast lane. You need to be aware of this and reactivate it after the update…open a command prompt and enter this command: net user administrator /active:yes
