denied priviledges to all Authenticated users including administrator

I denied all priviledges to authenticated users which includes administrator. Im able to log in but dont have a security tab. when booting in safe mode I have the security tab but cant take ownership.

i want to do a clean install but want to backup files, programs without user settings ( denied admin priviledges)

How should I go about it?

Slight quibble.
If you have a Live Linux CD/DVD, you don't need to install it, to use it.

I regularly use a Linux to bypass Windows eccentricities (I have it installed).
