and mine back to administrator I was denied both times.

lets start with why did you changed yours from admin in the first place ,as a computer have more than 1 admin acct. this is likely where the problem stems from ,
try rebooting computer ,hold down the f8 key and go to safe mode and enter the admin acct that should be there if windows was loaded correctly . [you should see a admin acct + your acct and your sons when in safe mode ]in the real admin acct try making the changes ,good luck

I switched my sons account to administrator so we could load up some software on his account. But the computer would still not allow us to do that. So instead of keep trying, I tried to switch my sons account back to limited and mine back to administrator and the computer denied me both times. Thats where I am now.
