    Here is what happened.

    I went to administrator tools > Computer management > Local users and groups > Users.

    Now I double clicked on the main user account. Then I switched to the 'member of' tab. I deleted the things whatever present over there.

    Then I restarted the system. Now I can only see Guest account. My main account is not visible there to login.

    I have no other account except Guest account. So I logged into the same but I cannot re enable the main account from here. Or I cannot create any new account from here.

    But it seems I have the built in administrator account enabled. Screenshot attached. I tried to restore my system. To do so it asked for the password of this administrator password. But I did not set any administrator password.

    So I'm stuck here with a Guest account. Please help me.

    By the way my main account is not deleted permanently. Screenshot attached for the same.

    The same question I posted on some other site: Accidentally deleted windows 8 user account - xda-developers

    If from the guest account you can start a commnd promp with run as adminitrator you could run lusrmgr.msc to read add the account. I have to ask but why would you remove everything from the member of dialog?

    Actually I was trying to look for a workaround to make my store work. I followed some thread and did those things. I thought it would prompt me if I do something wrong. Well. The problem is solved now.

    Like I said it asked for me for a password to enter into the admin account. I tried many passwords yesterday. But no success.

    Today I tried to enter into it without typing any password and to my surprise it let me in. I never guessed it would be like this.

    I restored my system and everything is fine now.

    Problem solved.

    Thanks for the reply.
