locked out as administrator to my own W7 PC

Specs: Windows 7
A couple of days ago I created a new user on my laptop. I was the only user and the administrator. I wanted to create a standard user and a administrator user. The new user i made admin and my original user I made standard. Now when I log in I am the standard user that works. If I try to log into the admin user it starts but is blank. I have no admin privileges in the account that works. I can't work in the registry or copy files to the new profile. I am locked out of everything. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Boot to the dvd and try restore point.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Hello I have done two different restore points. The programs work but I have no control over anything. It states that I need permission to preform any task. I don't have administrator privilege. I have created a blank administrator and as the only user I can't preform any tasks. I can't copy files or even change the time. I need to get rid of the administrator to carry on tasks. Thank you.

It asks when you boot to the dvd?

Then I think you are screwed. If you get rid of admin, I am not sure there is a way to recover if restore point doesn't work.

I have tried in safe mode. It won't let me make changes. What happen original was I had only one user me as administrator. For safety I wanted to create another user and make it a standard user but it got put in as a administrator and me became a standard user. The new administrator has no files under the new name so when I log in as a administrator it turns up black screen. If I log in as the standard user everything works but I have no administrative privileges and I'm not able to change anything. I have worked in the registry but I don't know where to look to correct these users. Thank you.
