Formalthio is on a distinguished road

Well, sorry to say, but there would have been an easier way to get the account back, without installing anything, or uninstalling. Force Shutdown your computer after saving all of your work. When it says that your computer "suffered" from an unexpected sutdown, how would you like to start your computer: choose safe mode/
When you log on to your non admin, go to normal command prompt, not run as admin command prompt.
Then do as said before: type net user administrator /active:yes
Then restart your computer, it will automatically go to normal mode. When all is said and done, click on the administrator, and it will log on him for you.
Then change the passwords, or fiddle around in cmd to allow yourself to logon.
If you do do it in cmd (which is what I do) type net help user.
That sholud have done the trick, or it may still do.
