    Windows 10 Faily edition

    Stuck in Guest mode in Windows 10

    Hi everyone,
    I upgraded to Windows 10 recently and just realized that I was in guest mode only.
    I can't install anything (cmd in admin mode), downgrade to Windows 7, restore, or do anything.
    There is no Administrator account, only my local guest account, and everytime I try something, it shows me the box where I need to click on YES, but it is greyed out.
    I restarted in Safe mode, as advised, but it always asks me to login to my local account, no other choice. And then, I am back in guest account in Safe mode. I tried all cmd command tricks, but always get stuck in Error 5, which means no administrator privileges.
    So I am not even able to downgrade, for the same reasons.

    Please help, this is driving me crazy!

    The built-in Administrator account might be hidden and you can activate it from an elevated Command Prompt. Here is a backdoor to access an elevated Command Prompt:
    Reset Windows 10 Password Without CD or USB Drive

    When you're at the Command Prompt, type the following command to activate the Administrator account:
    net user Administrator /active:yes
    You can also add a new admin account from the Command Prompt:
    net user Pebrok /add
    net localgroup Administrators Pebrok  /add
