Windows 7: Deleted Administrator Account

Deleted Administrator Account

I'm hoping someone can help me and soon as I purchased the LG X120 netbook for my daughter for Christmas. I was getting it all set up and then put on parental controls like a good mom would, but discovered I needed to have a separate account for her as a standard user and one for me as the administrator. Through this process there was a quick pop up that stated I could not complete the instruction without being a standard user...didn't put much thought into this as I knew I could just change it back after.....I was more mistaken than I have ever been.

Now there's no administrator account, I cannot run anything as the User Account Control asks for an administrator password but does not supply an area in which to input this. I have tried to run windows in safe mode but no administrator account shows up. I have tried to go through the computer management but no user or groups exists. Cannot reinstall Windows 7 as it came with the computer and there is no disk and even if it did, I cannot install unless I am an administrator. I cannot install anything so it makes for a pretty lame gift!

Any thoughts anyone? I need to get this fixed before Christmas morning! Heeellllllp!

Enable hidden administrator account, create a new user as an administrator, then disable the hidden administrator... See Brinks tutorial on how to do this -=> here


Merry Christmas!

Thank you for the reply....however, I have tried this. There is no Local Security Policy editor, no local user and groups, and the command prompt says access denied. I'm thinking I'm hooped here.

All computer come with a restore disc or restore partition. Use your manual, it will tell you how to restore to factory specs. You must boot up, while you boot up you hit a key, which allows you to restore. It is probalby a f key. Please, I know you are upset, but I truly think we will get this to work out.

I removed the passwords from both my daughter's and my account so at log in, it only shows our 2 accounts and I can log in on both. Neither will allow any changes to the user account.

Well it worked, thank you very much. I just have to reinstall everything again but at least I CAN now. I did not realize though that it would uninstall all the music etc... though, sigh.

Thanks for your very fast and successful reply!
