Something happened today and I can no longer access my regular "user" account.

There are five "users" showing in the MMC program in Windows 7 and only one is working. The problem with this is that it does not contain any of the information and links that I use daily.

The accounts are as follows;

Administrator (disabled)
D (not disabled)
DCM (disabled)
Guest (disabled)
Homegroupuser$ (not disabled)

I cannot remove the "disabled" status or rename any of these users. An error pops up saying "access denied".

Is there some way to do this that I have not found?

I tried "googleing" this but did nothave any luck.

Thanks

I am the only user and it happened yesterday after I disabled one of the accounts. Now, I cannot enable that account which is the one I need the most.

Thanks

I disabled them because all of a sudden, several accounts showed up at boot up and I did not want to have to select one every time.

I have followed the instructions on the Microsoft site and it does not work. I still get the "access denied" message with no explanation.

Luckily, I have a two week old drive image and may just run that because I will lose no data but may have to update a couple of programs.
