    Not the administrator on my computer, only user.


    Hi, I'm no longer an administrator on my computer, yet I'm the only user on it. It happened when I tried to remove the required password log in every time you are turn on your computer. It tells me I'm the guest account, and that the user is password protected. The problem is that I need administrative rights, and I can't change any settings whatsoever without being the administrator. Do you have any ideas?

    Option two works at boot, you are not even logged in.
