    I have accidentally deleted my administrative rights. How do I restore


    I have a new PC but set up a new ID as administrator. Forgot to add to group and deleted administrative rights on my original id. I have tried a reset and my pc won't reset. I have no admin rights so I can't do anything

    :)

  3. Accidentally deleted user account - urgent need to restore WIndows 10

    I accidentally deleted the user account that I was using (not admin) and now can't fix the issue.

    So, I followed these instructions (sort of):

    • Step 2: Choose Change your account name.
    • Step 3: Type a new name in the box and tap Change Name.
    • Step 1: Open Run by Windows+R, enter lusrmgr.msc and hit OK to open Local Users and Groups.
    • Step 2: Open the Users folder, right-click a user and select Rename in the menu.

    I renamed the user. But then, stupid me, it didn't change it when I checked the start menu. So I then, instead of changing the name back, I deleted that user (which I was actually logged in as - it didn't ask for a password or anything either). It then removed
    it from the list (there was a list of 3 items to choose from - Administrator, Guest , and the account I was using. I deleted that account (Liam it was called)

    I then stupidly decided to log off and restarted the computer. I then tried to login, and the user account it came up with was Liam - but obvsiouly as I'd deleted the user, when I typed in the password nothing happened). But because I deleted that user in
    the way above, it seems to have gone completely. What can I do to restore it?

    I've tried system restore but it fails. So can't get back to a restore point.

    It's a bit of a pickle really as it's an important user account on my work network and has folders on it that we need to function. I can't access the pc via another, as when I click 'Liam' it just can't connect, says it can't find it. I think what I've done
    has really broken the computer....

    Any help will be gratefully received.
