Only Administrator User Account Gone Missing!

I recently booted up my computer only to find that my user account (which is also the only administrator account) is not a user option to log in with. Only my guest account and one other account with limited access is available to log in.
Any help/guidance as to how to fix this? I cannot access any of my documents/files and I am DESPERATE!

    On the welcome screen, hit ctrl+alt+del twice. A box should appear, and you then type in "Administrator" and your password, and press enter. This worked for me when I was in a situation like this, but I have a Windows XP and that type of computer, and a Windows 7 are the only computers Ik that this works for. So if you don't have either a Windows XP or a Windows 7 I'm not sure if it'll work, but it's worth a shot.
  2. Login as the nonadministrator account. Run the computer management console using your admin credentials. Give admin rights to the non-admin account left enabled. Use regedit to disable the single user login screen
