question Stuck on a guest account, cannot access windows 7 admin account
  

I've been using my windows 7 laptop on an administrator account for a few months now. Then i gave it to my sister to use for a day and now that account is stuck on a guest account. I can't install anything or run certain programs. I've confronted my sister and she has no idea what she did. I don't have another admin account on the computer. How can I change it back?

Re: Stuck on a guest account, cannot access windows 7 admin account

You can try to follow the below method to solve your issue:
  • Youu need to first set your BIOS so that it uses the DVD drive as its primary boot device.
  • Then boot the machine with your Windows 7 Repair CD.
  • After that press a key if prompted to boot from the DVD.
  • Late on select "Safe Mode Command Prompt" when prompted.
  • Then log on as Administrator if prompted.
  • Select Repair when prompted.
  • Select System Restore when prompted.
  • Set Windows back to a point before this problem occurred.
  • When finished, remove the CD before rebooting the system.
In Step 2 you could also use your Windows 7 installation DVD. The subsequent steps are similar to the ones above.
