    I should probably add that I do not have the password to the only administrator account as I am assuming I changed it while I was intoxicated and do not remember thinking it was such a genius idea that i'd remember, well I was wrong. I remember what it use to be but no matter how many different ways I try it, it is not anything of the sort.

Well, you need to learn what a standard user account is.<br /><br />According to Microsoft, a standard user account is to let a person use most of the capabilities of the computer, but permission from an administrator is required if you want to make changes that affect other users or the security of the computer.<br /><br />When you use a standard account, you can use most programs that are installed on the computer, but you can't install or uninstall software and hardware, delete files that are required for the computer to work, or change settings on the computer that affect other users. If you're using a standard account, some programs might require you to provide an administrator password before you can perform certain tasks. So if you forgot Windows password, you could not reset the password by using a standard user account.
