cannot restore disk is full. no admin privileges

iv looked on these forums for hours now and cant quite find the right answers to my problems. my eventual goal is to factory reset the computer but i have many issues preventing me from doing that.
1 i do not have access to my c drive with win 7 home prem loaded on it. so i try and change my user permissions and cannot access them. i do not have admin privileges. tried the steps in this thread without luck. Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable i have three user accounts accounts i think. derek, administrator, default profile and i i cannot get my comp to run anything
