I can't even boot at safe mode not even in command mode. The only admin account's registry/profile corrupted.
even attempt to enable built-in Administrator failing as it is asking for Admin password.
only can use a non-Admin user account, and access internet.
No recovery CD, Windows/DOS CD. Not even able to restore an older system backup point (requires admin password!!).
I can't even copy files to another disk.

Problem is I only used on user Administrator account; and that is corrupted.
Can there by a remote Admin sort of solution available from Microsoft?
Or any other solutions (Windows 7)?

Try the PCUnlocker Live CD. I've used this method to promote a limited account to administrator on a windows XP computer, it's possible that this would also work for windows 7.

How did you try to activate the system Administrator account if you can't get a command prompt? Can your non-Admin account create another User Account and give it administrative privileges? If this is a password issue we can't help further - try asking the other users who gave the Admin a password.
