    When I switched on account lockout the only admin account got locked out. So now I only have one other account left on the welcome screen, a standard user. I’m guessing that since the admin account had a password and the standard user did not the admin got locked out.

    I can not make a new account in control panel because of UAC and when I open Administrative tools>Computer management>Local users and groups I can not unlock it in properties nor enable the built in administrator, nor add the standard user to the admin group.

    I can not use system restore or disable the welcome screen because of UAC.
    (when I enter the admins password in UAC it says that the account is locked out or not logged onto).

    This is really annoying as I have important files and photos from overseas on the admin account.

    Please help.
