Update on my situation:
AAM is uninstalled. Went in on the ftp and deleted the folder. However, I (as the super admin) am still restricted from viewing certain pages. One of those pages is the plugins page. It doesn't show in the plugin drop down menu, but if I go to the page /wp-admin/plugins it brings me to "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."
One of my other plugins, WordPress Business Directory, has one admin bar section for all its settings/admin and another admin bar section for its listings. I can access the listings area fine, but if I hover over the settings section, on hover a blank box appears with none of the submenu categories.
I'm currently using a theme called BlankSlate (a separate developer built this site originally) with no option to switch to a default WordPress theme.
I really just need to know how to completely remove AAM and all its traces so it will stop blocking me from these pages. As I mentioned above, trying a different role editing plugin will not work because I can't activate any plugins.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated,
