    If all else fails you may be able to reset it with the System Account.
    Don't use this if you don't know what you are doing though as serious problems can arise

    Try this!
    1. If logged on as administrator, then click Start, enter ‘cmd’ in the box, and start the command prompt. If logged on as a normal user, click Start, enter ‘cmd’, right click on the command prompt, and click ‘Run as administrator’ to start the command prompt.
    2. Enter the command: net user administrator /active:yes
    3. See ‘The command completed successfully.’
    4. Exit the command prompt.
