I need help accessing my administrators account. Before I created other accounts, my computer would automatically log on to administrator, but right now it displays the newly created accounts and not administrators. I can access most files in the account, but it is crucial that I log onto the account. All I can do is watch it sit in the computer manager... explain how I could easily access it?

The Administrator account is not designed for use in normal Windows, its primarily for Safe Mode. If you end up in normal mode and logged in as Administrator, then make new user accounts, Windows will not let you into Administrator any longer from the Welcome Screen, by design.
