User problem...A pretty big one... RRS feed

  • Question


    Alright so, Somehow, (not sure how) My only account was switched to a guest account and I have no Admin. functions at all. I've tried Control Panel > User Accounts to switch my account, but as I said a bit earlier, only admins can create accounts. Sad So I go back to Control Panel > Administrator Tools > Computer Management > Local Users and Groups > Users and the Administrator account profile has a little icon that shows an "x" on it. So I double click my user account (the one right below the "x") And click on Member Of and try to add the Administrator profile onto my account and it denies it with an error that enstates "One or more errors occured while recording group membership changes for the user *account name*" Also it gives me an error saying that it can't save to the specified name. So from there I remembered that I had a systen restore point a while back, in case anything horrible happened. I go to System Restore to do just that, and it gives me another error that says, "Only an Administrator can restore your system...Is there any way to solve this problem? I can't download anything for use or do anything other than surfing the web...I'd only want to use a complete wipe as an absolute last resort.....
