Hello Having exhausted all the other obvious resources, I am hoping someone on this forum will be able to help with a incredibly frustrating Windows 7 issue I am experiencing. My user account, for some strange reasons, appears to bet set up as a 'Guest account'. As a result, I am unable install new programs or make anything more than basic system changes. When the dialog box appears, requesting an administrator password, the 'Yes' button is disabled (greyed out). I have unsuccessfully tried to enable administrator access using the various methods posted online e.g. right click on Command Prompt and run as administrator, but again, I do not get very far because the disabled administrator dialog box is greyed out. At one stage, I did set up my system to automatically log in to Windows and I am not sure whether that's had anything to do with it. I have tried to disable that option but haven't been able to.
