    Since you say that you messed up your password and security info, I think that means that you can't get help here. I'll report the post to a moderator and let them decide.

    Hello, sorry to hear about your troubles.
    You could try to access the repair option by rebooting the machine and tapping the F8 key; then choose System Restore (Not a full restore, just the Microsoft System Restore). Just pick a date to restore to from before all of this happened and wait until it's done. Cannot tell for sure if it will work, but it's worth a try. Keep us posted.
    All the best

    You cannot take away the rights of the Built-In Admin account. You may have to boot to one of the Linux Distros on top of Windows to reset those permissions.

    When you mess with NTFS permissions, you can, actually, completely lock out the administrator account and the system account. You have to be very careful when making NTFS permission changes. In my experience, this is not a recoverable problem. You'll probably need to reinstall Windows.

    What was the purpose of messing with the C drive security permissions? What were you trying to do?
