I was trying to keep the kids off of my Admin. account, so in "Admin Tools","Computer Manager" I deleted one of the Admin. accounts. Not the one I login on regularly. Now when I try to login the Admin account, it denies my password. However, I can login my guest account. But as with any guest account I can do anything. Bios is password protected and I can't remember the password it's been so long ago. How do I get back into my Admin account? Can I use comand prompt to fix this? I have important work files I need. Thank you for any help you may have!

It is a violation of forum rules.
