I was adding a user in command prompt like I had done before and Im pretty sure I typed the command right I typed " net user \add name and it seemed normal and to check if it was there I typed net user and thats when I discovered my name was now not under admin and helpassistant had been moved

Administrator Dummy Guest
HelpAssistant jacob SUPPORT_388945a0
The command completed successfully.

This is what its saying my name used to be there and I checked out helpassistant and its just some built in thing.
It wouldnt be so bad except now I cant log in as admin. My name is still there on the log in screen but the password is not working. Ironically i named the new account dummy ... anyways I've been asking on other forums but no one seems to be able to help me fix this and I dont have the xp disc i never got one with it. so I was hoping that some on might know something to help me out here.
