    I turned my computer on this afternoon and my admin user is missing. ALL my documents and programs are linked to my admin account. All I'm showing is a guest user. How can I fix this?

    try this

    start pc
    hold F8

    select safe mode with command promt

    when the box appears type

    net user administrator /active:yes

    a mesage should come up saying successfull

    reboot the pc

    an account administrator should appear.... IF THIS IS YOUR ACCOUNT THEN GOOD! IF NOT PROCEED

    login, go to start

    control panel

    system and secuity

    computer management

    users folder

    click users

    CHECK IF YOUR USERNAME IS STILL THERE... IF SO PROCEED

    right click your account and click properties,

    ensure the account is not disabled or locked

    if the boxes are ticked untick them and save

    to remove the main account

    repeat the same process at the start however type

    net user administrator /active:no
