How do you make your user profile an administrator, when you do not have access to the only administrator account? I never will have access to the admin account in my own situation. Don't guess and dont ask me, It's not happening. I completely cocked it up. Now im stuck. I cant back up a lot of my files because I have them locked to the admin account. I dont want to reformat because, not only will I loose a lot of my files, but I dont have the admin privilages to do so anyway. I can't reset my password either.
I want to simply make this account an administrator so then I can remove my main users password, back up files sort things out then reformat my drive like I've been wanting to for ages.

okay in cmd type
net user administrator /active:yes
this activated the main sys admin account then you can edit the settings
when ur done type
net user administrator /active:no
this shuts down the admin account

Try this too , Put your windows 7 cd in , boot it and at the bottom when you have to select Install click on repair computer, and go to System restore , and you probably find a recovery from a day that you had full acess click on that one and repair (ps: you don't lost any files)
