Unfortunately, I removed my user account from administrators group and my default administrator account was disabled by default. So now i am unable to perform any administrative task. Is there any way to add my user account in administrator group OR Enable default administrator account in windows 7?

This question came from our site for professional system and network administrators.
If you are on a corporate network then you can ask your domain administrator to log in and fix things.
If not then boot the computer from some other medium and use tools to reset the administrator password. Personally I use this bootable CD image, but there are many variations of these.
Here is something for you to think about:
How secure would the security be if a regular user could self-promote himself to system god?
The whole security system is EXACTLY DESIGNED NOT TO ALLOW THAT. Common sense.
You could have made a password recovery disc when installing.
When not, reinstall time?
