You didn't tell enough detail but try a boot to SAFE MODE and log in as the usual Administrator account there. Create at least two Admin accounts there to move to.
Somehow I no longer have administrative privileges on my own computer, which I do not recall ever having set up in the first place. My orginal user profile is damaged and under a new profile I set up to try to fix the user profile problem, I cannot not perform some of the steps in the Microsoft instructions to do so because I do not have privileges. I also cannot install any new programs under my new profile. I really do not want to perform a recovery and lose much of my data. Is there is any way to regain control by having administrative privileges again?
Any help would be truly appreciated.
