Unhappy no admin account

After being advised to run a separate Admin account ,I generated one and set my account to a standard user but when i restarted the admin account was reset to a standard user .Now whenever a update or admin related task is set the password box appears with no area for a password and the yes box is dimmed , not a happy camper as i am locked out of all the advice i can find so far ,TIA

Re: no admin account

You can find on the net a Linux software, that you can put on a USB stick and it will let you reset the admin account. Have a look around you will find it, other than that, reinstall OS on top and create a new admin account.

A clean install of Windows is of course the most reliable solution, but assuming you want back into your current installation; Offline Windows Password & Registry Editor
