Can't log in to Windows 7

Please help me out !! Please !!
Actually last time when my windows was working fine i was playing with cmd and was checking the last logon history using cmd NET USER !!
Somehow i tried NET USER TECHNO logoff (TECHNO is the username) and it said the command is successfull and i thought the windows will logoff now using this command.but nithing happened !!

I tried using NET USER TECHNO shutdown and again it said its successfull !! then after few hours when i restart the laptop and tried login it says The username or password is incorrect

i don't know what happened
I'm having a dual boot with Ubuntu (Windows is the host) ... help me out to login into windows 7.I seriously don't want a re-format or re-installation of the window !!

Hi technoankur

Try using method 2 of the following tutorial to enable the Hidden Admin account:

Built-in Administrator - Enable from WinRE

From there, you should be able to undo what you did

What is your Windows Installation media? DO you have a Recovery Disk? or do you have a Recovery Partition?

Download WinInternals ERD commander and load up to disk. Choose/Start Menu/System Tools/*LockSmith*

When you choose locksmith it will show you the local accounts on the machine and give you the option to change the password. Then reboot while the disk is out and login with your new password.

Actually my problem is that the useraccount got logged off or shutdown (as i've mentioned in the problem) via cmd.I exactly remember the password...!!

All i need is a way that i can turn on that username or i can use another account to enter the windows !!
Help me !!

Switch on the computer, and spam F8 until you get a list of options, (including Safe Mode)

From there, access the recovery options (I'm sorry, I can't remember the exact name, I think it's called "Repair my computer" or "access advanced recovery options") to get to the WINdowsRecoveryEnvironment (WINRE) You'll know WinRE when you find it, it will have a list of options such as "Startup Repair" "Command Prompt" etc.

Then use Method 2 of the tutorial I posted in my first post to get into the Hidden Admin account.

From there, undo/reenable the account (or whatever you did)

You are confusing the issue by using terms that mean other things. I think you are trying to say that the account you are using has been DISABLED. If so, and you have no other administrative account enabled, then you are pretty much done.
