Windows 7: Built in administrator account at log in

Built in administrator account at log in

I have a Sony vaio laptop running windows 7. Recently I restored it to a previous state, so I decided to create a password for my admin account. Once I completed the password set up I restarted my computer to see if my password will work. Well it didn't. I Got message "your account has been disabled please see admin" (or something like that). Im completely locked out of my computer. The only accounts pop up at the log in screen is the built in admin account and other user. I've tried putting it in safe mode (same result), I've tried the blank pswrd (same result) I've tried alt+clt+del (nothing pops up) and I've tried using my pswrd. Can someone please help?!!

See here: How to Boot to the System Recovery Options in Windows 7

Select System Restore. Pick a date before you made the password change, that should fix it.
