Windows 7: Password missing

Password missing

My normal account has been set to a standard account, and now the only Admin account is ASP.NET machine account. I can change practically nothing without ASP.NET asking me for an Administrator password I don't know. How can I fix this?

Thanks anyway, but I can't make those changes because it asks for an administrator password to change those things. The only account with administrator privileges now is ASP.NET, and I need the password to change anything big on the computer.

Hello !!

Also you can login under Safe Mode there you can see the Administrator account use that you make your Standard account as administrator !!

Hope this helps,
