To get a local admin account created we'll need to burn a program to a CD and boot from it.

Do you have a blank CD?

But my computer doesn't have a disk port either.

If you deleted an admin account, then what account you were logged in at the time should be an admin account as well.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
It was except it was denied any user rights.
I couldn't do anything and when I logged out it wouldn't let me log back into Administrator.
Expert:  Cody replied 3 months ago.

Your account may have local admin rights if that is what you used

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
My safe boot won't load an admin, my access to system restore is denied, my computer has no disk or disk port and the command for disabling the admin won't work

It won't let me install that either.

do you have access to another computer to burn the usb flash drive?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No
It will only let me copy it to a flash drive.
Expert:  Cody replied 3 months ago.

I think we are stuck on needing a working computer to get this flash drive to be bootable.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I have access to another computer but it is a chromebook and won't install isotousb because it is for pc.
