Windows Central Question

When I attempt to sign into windows with my created administrator profile I get an error saying "the user profile service failed the sign in, user profile cannot be loaded"
I am able to log in with another user ID but since it's not the administrator I can't change or download anything. Is there a way to delete/change this admin ID which appears to be corrupted since it doesn't show up in my user accounts, without formatting my drive? software Bear in mind I'm unable to download any software that might help.
Also I don't have the windows 10 disk, I downloaded the "upgrade".
