Administrative privileges problem

Hello guys, yesterday i created an account with administrative privileges, i had administrator enabled too, i disabled administrator but accidentally converted my account type to standard user!! i've got only 3 accounts "Zain" "guest" "administrator", where "Zain" is a standard one while the other two are disabled!
Is There a way for me to get back administrative privileges? eg. enabling the administrator, or changing my account type back to a administrator???

Have you tried changing your account type back to administrator, the same way you changed it to a standard user?
