I'll start from the top....First of all my laptop ran out of batt one day then never came back on. I took it to a guy who told me that this was because my Windows was corrupt and probably picked up a virus. I then had him backup my files, re-install Windows 7 (at my request, i dont get on with 8 whatsoever) and get my computer running again.
I got it back and everything seemed fine. Fast forward a few days and i dropped my laptop, smashing the screen. When taking it to a different shop, the guy there tells me that whoever dealt with my laptop previously had made a horror show of the repair, the system is faulty and now basic run commands dont even work etc. This happened precisely one day before I am due to travel for 6 months where it is absolutely essential I have my laptop to use.
So i got the laptop back and didnt have time to check it properly, i went to DL skype and have now been told that i dont have the permissions to do so, even though my account (as far as i can see) is the only account and has admin privileges. I have now come to see that i am virtually locked out of everything - C Drive, cannot download anything etc..I know that there is an elevated built in admin account so i tried to disable that but i cant even get into my settings to do so.
I am at my wits end and find myself in the position of being halfway across the world and locked out of my whole system, not good! any help whatsoever would be much appreciated.
