Locked out of administrative control ,Windows7

I am running windows 7 professional x64 and all of a sudden ,I cannot login to the administrator account. It's not even a choice. I only have one account I can access. Anything I try to run that needs an admin access won't run. I can't even type in a password. Also the yes button on the screen isn't even lit up to indicate that you can click on it. I have tried running in safe mode but still cannot access any other accounts. What do I do ? How do I fix it ?

Can you access Local Users and Groups Manager - Open?

Try scanning with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free.

If administrator is disabled, try enabling (possibly option 4 for you) - Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable

I understand that, you have couple of choices:
- Option 5 of User Account - Reset Password in Windows 7, this program can enable disabled accounts and reset passwords , you can try it to see whether your accounts have been disabled.
- Option 4 of the link I gave which links to - Built-in Administrator - Enable from WinRE (method 2 for you)
- Try a System Restore to a date prior to this issue - Option 2 System Restore
