What a cool dialog! I am guessing you went into Computer Management and
removed your account from the Administrators group? The reason no
administrative accounts are showing up in the dialog is because there are
none! You removed the last operational administrative account on the system.
To fix it boot into Safe Mode by holding down F8 on startup. It should
automatically log you in with the Administrator account (which is disabled
normally). Then add another account that is an administrator. If your regular
account is not an administrator you need another admin account to elevate to.
The OS will prevent you from removing the last admin account if you use the
Users control panel, but not if you use any other tools.
