Lost administrator account!

Foolishly, I have changed my administrator account to a limited user account (It seemed like a good idea at the time!)
Now, I do not have sufficient authority to make any changes to my system or carry out any troubleshooting tasks. I cannot access any system tools such as System Restore, Defrag etc, and the 'search'and 'run' commands are no longer available in the start menu.
I shall be very grateful for advice on how I can restore my former status as administrator.

Sorry! Messed up the last effort! Try Microsft support click here;RID;faqs . You will need to choose the appropriate Operating System in the Windows section and then search for a solution.
