Hey, I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium on my HP Pavilion Slimline Desktop and I need help getting my Standard user account back to Administrator. I can't run certain programs and I also can't install and uninstall anything. I don't have the Windows 7 Installation Disk to do restore. I have already tried Safe Mode and I can't enable and built in admin either. Please help me! Thank you!

How are you trying to change the type of account?

I don't have the Windows 7 Installation Disk to do restore

Do you mean System Restore? If you are, you don't need the installation disk to do this.

To use System Restore click on the start orb.

In the search box type in System Restore.

In the list of results click on System Restore, if you are prompted for an administrator password type it in.

Follow the prompts to choose a restore point and restore your computer.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
