Windows 7: I made my hidden account my admin and cannot get on to it!!

I made my hidden account my admin and cannot get on to it!!

So today I by mistake made my regular admin just user and not an admin and my hidden account my admin.

I tried to make my hidden account accessible but I cannot change it from 0 to 1 without admin user name and password, I could press Shift Right click and run as different user, but the main problem is I did not password protect my hidden user and when I just type in my Admin name and no password it says

Logon failure: user account restriction. Possible reasons are blank password (I don't have one) logon hour restrictions, or a policy restriction has been enforced.

I'm really stuck and do not know what to do PLEASE HELP

Try starting your computer on safe mode. I'm not sure if that'll fix your problem, but I know for sure that you can find the default administrator account that way.

Let me know how it goes.

I tried safe mode but it automatically signs me in as my standard user

This is one of the main reasons your not supposed to mess with the hidden admin account. It's there for when you run into a problem so you can access the hidden admin account and try and repair, delete, add and remove other accounts and the system.

I think your only option now is to re-install the OS.

Go through the options; start with last known good configuration. Then if that one doesn't work continue on with the rest. If none of those seem to work then do a clean install.

What is the make and model of your PC?
