    Just backup the data in that problematic account like documents, desktop items (C:\Users\%UserName%)

    Now log off and sign in into another user with administrative rights and delete that account and create a new one with administrative rights.

    That might help

    Is this a work computer with IT administrators? If so, you may be locked out of what you're trying to do.

    You have no need to use the "SuperUser" account. Just create a new profile, or pull the drive, pop it on a USB to SATA connector or in a external drive enclosure. Boot up other computer, then take over the rights to the drive out of the bad computer. You can then pull all files that you want from whatever user profile.

    The problem that you run into now. Is that with 8.1.x. You have to have a "Microsoft" account, before you can create a "Local" account.
