Windows 7: How to Login As Administrator (not shown in login screen)

How to Login As Administrator (not shown in login screen)

After 3 days of installing windows 7 Ultimate and all the softwares/games, I made a mistake by changing user group and removing administrative privileges from user Miky. Right now I have the following user accounts:
Administrator -> Account disabled
LogMeInRemoteUser -> Administrator group with known password.
Miky -> Users group

How to login as LogMeInRemoteUser when it is not shown on login screen?
Can I switch user using command prompt?

Thanks in advance!

Try this from an Elevated Command prompt:

net use Administrator /active:yes

Logoff and you should now see Administrator as one one the users. Login and open User Accounts and fix the Miky account.

It was my first step after loosing administrator privileges. Since I'm logged in as a User I can't enable Administrator account. I'm getting access deny.

Any other ideas to log in as LogMeInRemoteUser which has administrative privileges?

can't login to an account, brings back to the login screen
when I try to login to either of the accounts, it flashed for a second and then goes back to the login screen. I did an offline defender scan and remove a few adware, but I don't think they were the cause. Is there any way I could monitor the login process and see what's failing.
