Windows 7: Admin Account Disabled By Default

When you made your network username an administrator, did you remove your local account as an administrator?

It does sound like you may be stuck and as said by Jordus, it's looking like you may have to reinstall.

Try here:

Offline NT Password & Registry Editor

Download the ISO and burn to a CD. Boot from the CD and follow the steps - I haven't tried this with 7 but can confirm that it works with XP and Vista.

There is an option for renabling disabled accounts.

I started in safe mode and it had the option to log in as administrator. It says preparing desktop still though so i'm kinda worried its taking way to long.
