Windows 7: I made my user to be a Standard Users but admin disable

I made my user to be a Standard Users but admin disable

and now I'm stuck. I cant install some programs or drivers because the Admin user is disable.

How I did it?
I changed my user in the "control panel"to a "Standart User" and I used the "Local users and groups" to disable the Administrator account. How can I now get administration?

Hello Jiddisch, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Usually when you do not have an administrator account available to log in with, you can boot into Safe Mode through the Advanced Boot Options screen to use the built-in Administrator account to then change your account back to an administrator account type instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
