You should look at the message I quoted about four posts up.

Linkz: You should start your own thread, that way we can keep this one focused on helping the original poster.

my apologies, i didn't actually mean to start a thread.

Aren't there other accounts available for you to log into?

If you have a guest account only, then go to the following MS site and read:

Seems like at this point you might consider backing up your important stuff and doing a clean install.

It appears this is the most logical condition, ask the Administrator, in that case would be the only answer.

Then the only thing to do is put the Win 7 DVD in the drive, start the setup, format the drive and start over.

I must say that for a administrators account to turn to a guest account is very unlikely.

Good luck.
