How do I show my administrator account again in windows 7?

I was trying some stuff that other day and I made an account and made it administrator type and made another one with a standard user type, now the problem is I have hidden my administrator account and I can't bring back because I can't access nothing from this standard user account, everything that requires an administrator perdition just give me that message "DO YOU WANT TO ALLOW THE FOLLOWING PROGRAM TO MAKE CHANGES TO YOUR COMPUTER" there is OK and cancel but I can't press OK, I tried changing the dword value to one But it says I am not permitted or something like that, I tried going through dos But i couldn't it says access denied.

Welcome to Seven Forums kotta91.
Yes a standard user account is restricted from doing admin type tasks. Log out of the Standard account, log in to your admin account, that should do it.

Lemme rephrase this,I have hidden my administrator account and can't show it again
not with dos, not with regedit, not with anything that requires administrator permition

Welcome to the forums!

1. Open a Command box with Admin Rights
2. Type: net user administrator /active:yes

That should do it!
Hope this helps,

Right like that is going to help.

Plan and simple, will either need to reinstall Windows, or use tool that boots outside of Windows that either allows you to edit the registry, unhide accounts, or can activate the built-in administrator account so you can undo your mistake. Those tools that allow such activities are beyond me as I've never made the mistake of locking myself out.
