    i deleted my main windows user account


    Hey guys,

    about 7 hours ago i deleted my main windows user account and ever since ive been working tirelessly to try and fix the problem. every time i boot up it automatically takes me to a temporary profile with the same name as the previous one that i deleted and because its a temp profile i cant access most things, and believe me ive tried everything (system restore, hidden admin) but nothing will work and i just want to create a new user and forget that one, is this possible or will i have to reset my pc?
