    Ok I just turned of PC and turned back on and the administrator was underneath username, pressed it and it's opened into safe mode, how do I now get out of safe mode so I can get my computer back to how it was?

    Good news so far. You should be able to use one of the options in the tutorial below to boot back into normal mode.

    Hello, I just followed option FOUR. However, now every action requiring admin rights opens a window demanding admin username and password. No matter what I put in, it says "the request operation requires elevation". What do I do now?

    Hello Jimmiwill, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Which account is this happening in? Is this account an administrator?

    This would be normal with a standard user account.

    In addition, check to see if your UAC settings are set to default.

    Hello Brink, the only name that shows up under Members is "Administrator".

    I am also unable to do anything related to UAC Settings because I am not an administrator! What do I do? I thought option FOUR would give me access to the admin account.

    Edit: the account is not an administrator, but I followed option FOUR, and then proceeded to rebbot my computer. I used option FOUR because I had accidently removed admin privileges from my personal user account.

    Were you able to sign in to the "Administrator" account?

    If so, then it appears that you may have also removed administrator rights for the built-in Administrator account somehow if it is not by default anymore.

    To log into the Administrator account, it says I need a smart card? I don't even know what that is. BTW, thank you for the quick responses.

    Do you have a "Sign-in options" link under "Administrator" on the Sign-in screen to be able to select a different option (ex: password) to sign in with?
