    Boot into safe mode and go in the administrator account. There you can upgrade that limited account.

    Safe mode ---> Hit F-8 as system is booting (usualy after the system beep at the end of POST). If you see windows starting to load you didn't hit F-8 in time. When you see the boot menu select safe mode. You will then see text scroll up you screen (don't pay attention to this) The login screen will come up with both Administrator and that limited acount.

    After in Admin go to User setting and upgrade the account. Then reboot.
