Enable default Administrator account on my Windows 7

Specs: Windows 7

I need help to Enable default Administrator account on my Windows 7 since the default Admin access has been disabled and i have unknowingly moved my local user to Guests group. There is no local Administrator account active on my machine. How to go about this? Anybody aware of any registry settings which can enable admin login from my guest account???

When starting the computer tap F8 a few times and it should boot to a black screen with menu options, try choosing safe mode, see if you can load the admin account from safe mode and fix your user. Alternatively tap F8, on start up and select "boot to command prompt" when you get to the command prompt type the following: net user administrator /active:yes hit enter, if the command completes successfully when you reboot it will now bring up the admin account for you to log into. The trouble is; if the guest account is all you can log into, it may not complete the command due to lack of admin prvileges. But that is the dos command. /active:yes turns on the admin account, and if you get your account working the same net user command with /active:no will rehide the admin account. The space is required before the /active:yes.

It does work....I just did it on my system, you either have the syntax wrong or you lack the admin privileges to change it. What does it say when you type the command???

Have you done the prodedure by booting to a Windows 7 DVD disk and running a command prompt or have you been denied access to changing the key ?
