How to enable Administator account in Windows 7

I have Updates my PC from Windows Vista to Windows 7 and accidentaly had been logged in to the Guest account. It does not let me choose Computer --> Manage option  as i do not have enough permissions and i do not have local group policy tool as my version of Windows 7 is Home.

Would you please advice how can i enable Admin account on my computer?

You will need an administrator account to Enable the Administrator account.  As the Administrator account is disabled by default, what account did you create during installation of Windows?  You might try looking up the username in C:\Users\ and trying to logon with that account (if you remember the password) or trying a blank password.  You might also try running a utility like Ophcrack to see if you can recover the password for that user - if it is not blank and you have forgotten it.
