Hi,

A while back, I was changing something on my user account on my MacBook Pro. And before I saved my changes, I forgot to mark the box "Make account admin" (or something, I can't really remember). So, everything saved, but now I do not have an admin account on my laptop. Which is, as it has turned out, a massive problem due to this rendering deleting applications and files, updating applications and the software impossible. My laptop is now in the prosses of crashing because the firewalls and the software system is weakening (I can't install the newest updates to anything).

So, my question is; how do I fix this? I don't have any other admin accounts on my laptop I can use, and the guest account is disabled (and I can't turn that on without an admin account). It feels like I've tried everything, and nothing's worked. I really need to fix this.

Any help at all will be greatly appreciated!
