Start in Safe Mode by pressing F8 on boot. Safe Mode
Then you can login as user "administrator" (try blank password). Now you can change your user type
Sorry but what I said isn't working!
You have to logon with an account with admin rights to do it. Since this is impossible for you you have to enable the built-in admin account called "administrator". Is has a blank password by default.
For 32bits Windows 7 it's easy, for 64bits Windows 7 more difficult
Built-in Administrator - Enable from WinRE
