    sort of complicated and stupid how it happened but i basically don't have an administrative account anymore, all i have is 1 standard user. i cannot boot into single user and i do not have the install disks and i was wondering if anybody had a solution to either turn my current user into an admin or create a new admin

    You can re-order install disks from Apple.

    Note: This is the same question asked fairly often in this forum by people who have stolen Macs, so be prepared for comments about that, especially since this is your first post in this forum. Calling Apple for new install discs is your best bet.

    Since there is no way for me to know if it's your Mac, I won't help you further.
