I have Windows 7 and my User name is has Standard User rights.

1) I had logged with Administrator login and tried to change my user logins rights from Standard to Administrative, but could not do so as the “Change User Type” button was not enabled. How can that button be enabled to invoke Administrative rights or how can I change my user rights from Standard to Administrator?

2) My desktop is not accessible and visible. That is, while saving anything, I cannot do so at the desktop.

3) The drives C, or D or E is inaccessible for saving anything.

Please help me.

With regards and thanks

Setup a new Administrator account and switch preferences to it.
Delete old Standard account and folders when done.
