I logged back in as myself and soon discovered that i couldn't launch executables or make changes to the system that required elevated privileges because i forgot to enable the built-in admin account (which is disabled by default). How do i fix this?
There are a couple of ways. Restore from a backup before the problem, or enabling the built in Admin account (tutorial on enabling in tutorial section). I would restore from a backup if available because you dont know what else has gone south.
Let us know if you need help with whichever path you choose
