    Oh dear, you should never remove or demote the last admin account or you can never install anything ever again. Fortunately there's a built-in Administrator account. It's currently disabled, but this Tutorial tell you how to enable it. Then you can log in as Administrator and make your normal account an admin again. You need Option 4 here...

    For security, remember to disable the built-in Administrator account after you have finished using it.
