    I have UAC enabled and system admin disabled and I changed my current user account rights from administrtor to regular.
    Since I have no more admin rights I can't diable UAC or enable system admin - not with regedit not with MSconfig, nowhere.
    I also have no restore point!

    Please help me what to do

    upon boot, press F8.
    boot in safe mode. The logon screen now shows the hidden admin account.
    Log in to it, and change your settings back.

    Uac

    Boot into safemode. (F8 when start up) Then change the settings back when you are in safemode.

    If that don't work, try this :

    Open a command prompt in administrator mode by right-clicking and choosing “Run as administrator” (or use the Ctrl+Shift+Enter shortcut from the search box)

    Now type the following command:

    Code:
    net user administrator /active:yes

    press enter



    Now log out, and you'll see the admin account as a choice.

    genuine555 and David Toska many thanks to both, I owe you.
    I resolved the problem as you suggested - runing under safe mode.

    Just about suggestng to turn admin using Command Prompt - I know this option, I got all possible methods from other forums, but none worked since there was UAC enabled and admin was disabled and I always got UAC pop on window making me to choose to run as admin but only NO was awailable.
    If you don't have admin rights and admin is disabled you can't open Command Prompt as admin, you can't change registry, you can't change settings in MSCONFIG...

    The only solution was simple F8 at startup. I don't understand why this solution was proposed only here, since I asked for help on 8 different forums but none give a usefull solution.
