Windows 7: All accounts set themselves to standard!!! HELP!!! ASAP!!!!

21 Dec 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
All accounts set themselves to standard!!! HELP!!! ASAP!!!!

I went on my computer to find that whenever I attempted to open a program it would say I dont have permission to open it. So I looked at the User Account Settings and it said that my account (which was an admin account) was a standard account. So I logged into my other account that was an admin account to find that that account had been changed to standard. So I created a new admin account. In that account i could open programs but the settings said it was a standard account. So from that account I tried to change my first 2 accounts to admin, but whenever I clicked on admin, the change account type button would be grayed out.
