    Hello there,

    f the Administrator user account is disabled on Windows, you won't be able to log in using that account directly. However, there are a few potential options you can try to regain access to your Windows system:

    Login with Another Administrator Account: If there is another active administrator account on the system, you can try logging in with that account.

    This article describes how to access your Microsoft Windows Server 2003-based computer by using the Administrator account after you disable the local Administrator account. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-client/windows-security/access-computer-after-administrator-disabled

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
