I don't know how you were able to turn an existing account into a guest account, so I'll give you some options on ways you may be able to access the administrators rights.

What access does the 'Other User' account have. Can you log in to that user and change the user accounts in the control panel?

Or you can try to change it to the admin account. Click on start menu, right click
on Computer, Click on manage. Go to Local use and groups -> Users. Right
click on Guest -> properties
Click the second tab "Member of". Click on Add. Add the Administrators group
to the guest account. Click ok.

Or enabe the administrator account at log on screen.
If you can access the administrative tools, right click on Local Security Policy, and run as administrator
Last time i change my user name on run user passwords2. Then when i restart my computer again, my log in became a guest account.

The access 'other user' account is same Santo(guest account).
Of course i can log in but still i can't change anything.

I already try to manage my computer, but the computer ask me to enter adminitrator password(though i blank my admin pass).
It made me confuse cause no space to type the words on it.
Here the pic

My friend suggested me to use safe mode option, but in vista i don't know in which place. Anyone know? Help me please....
