    Hello Riyansh, and welcome to Vista Forums.

    Try this tutorial to see if you can change the account type for these accounts back to what you wanted. You will need to have at least one other administrator account though to be able to remove that type from the others.

    User Account Type

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    You need to log out of the Guest Account first, and login with another different Adminsitrator account before you can make changes to the Guest Account.

    Have you tried rebooting into Safe Mode to use the built-in "Administrator" account that is usually disabled?
