i am the only user on the computer so i obviously had the admin privilege, but now all of the sudden i'm a limited user account, and since i'm the only user on the computer i cant use another user to fix it , and if the other user was there it would have to be a administrator. so i don't know what to do . i'm kinda computer savy but iv never run into this problem. i need help

To get admin rights boot into safe mode and select the Admin account. From there you should be able to give your user account admin rights.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
