User account control RRS feed

  • Question

  • So recently I messed with my user account name (not a good idea). So then I had to go into safe mode and enable Admin account. This ended up deleting my current user account. I can't find it on the login screen. The files are still there, but I can't find a way to reenable the account. Also, I can see the account in "parental controls", but not in the "Manage accounts" section. Do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks

  • Time to do a repair install from the win 7 dvd.   You have changed far too many things to be able to reverse them all.
