Can not log into admin

This is brilliant, I DO NOT KNOW HOW THIS HAPPENED?!

I can not install programs anymore bacause it asks for admin priveliges. Then i went to control panel -> User accounts and it shows my account as being a guest account. I went into my account and tried to elevate it to admin. I can select admin and when ever i click ok it just shows my account as being a guest. I went into advanced account controls and tried to add adminitrators as part of my user name. "Access denied" Then i tried to enable administrator account. "Access denied"

What is going on?! Did I manage to lock myself out of my pc with just a stupid guest acc?

TRY THIS
RE-BOOT system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it’ll show Classic Login box. Now type “Administrator” (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank.(or put the password you used at install of windows) Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows. Now you can reset your account password from “Control Panel -> User Accounts”.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

I can't delete a file from the desktop. When I try, it says to get the rights from the specified admin user (which I'm logged on). The strange thing is that I still can create other users from this account (including admins). Any suggestion on what to do?
