    Hello Image, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Yeah, Microsoft should hard code it so that you are unable to disable the current account like that by mistake.

    You might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before the account was disable to hopefully undo it so it'll be enabled again.

    Hope this helps,
