This means that you painted yourself into a corner. Every machine must have two fully tested admin accounts, with their details recorded on paper. You can promote your account back to admin by going through the steps outlined below. The process is involved and requires some careful typing. Ask a computer-savvy friend to assist you if you lack experience in this area.
 1. Set your BIOS to use the DVD drive as the primary boot device.
 2. Boot with a Windows Repair CD.
 3. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD …" appears.
 4. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next. You are now in Repair Mode.
 5. Select an Operating System, then click Next.
 6. Select the Command Prompt.
 7. Identify the correct drive letter for your Windows installation. It could be a drive other than C: but it won't be X:. You do it by typing the commands
    dir C:\Win* {Enter}
    dir D:\Win* {Enter}
    dir E:\Win* {Enter}
    etc.
    until you find the Windows folder.
    I will call that drive "Q:".
 8. Type these commands:
    cd /d Q:\windows\System32 {Enter}
    move  sethc.exe  \  {Enter}
    copy  cmd.exe  sethc.exe  {Enter}
 9. Reboot normally but hold down the Shift key permanently.
10. When challenged for a password, tap the Shift key five times. You will see a small black screen.
11. Type these commands:
    net user  {Enter}
    (To see a list of all accounts that exist on your machine)
    net user Administrator {Enter}
    (To see if the Administrator account is active)
12. Type these commands:
    net localgroup administrators "xxx" /add  {Enter}
    (Replace xxx with the account you wish to promote to admin status)
    net user Administrator /active:yes {Enter}
    (To activate the Administrator account if desired)
13. Log on under your account and check if it has admin status.
14. Reboot the machine into Repair Mode as per Steps 1..6 above.
15. Type these commands:
    cd /d Q:\windows\System32 {Enter}
    copy \sethc.exe {Enter}
16. Reboot into Windows.
Instead using a Windows Repair CD in Step 2, you can use your Windows 7 Installation DVD. The steps are similar to the ones above.
