admin login help

OK I'm an idiot.....
I was settingup my mothers laptop becuase she ones again got a virus on it. So I was putting parental controls so she couldn't use is as an admin. i mad her a standard user.... I thought i'd be nice and hide the adminn acct. by
disabling the administrator via cmd.exe "net user administrator /active:no". Now I want to install some additional programs and I cannot enable the administrator login because the UAC settings do not allow me to turn the admin ON. In the command prompt, it says "type administrator password and then click Yes." but when I type the password the "Yes" button remains gray and I cannot click it, so it does not allow me to login as admin, so I'm stuck only able to login as a user, but not the admin. I know my admin password butI still can't log in as the admin...
Please help,

Here are various remarks about your situation. The first one pertains to the zigzags, question about safe mode? I think that if you try in safe mode it will work
