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

UPDATE:
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
