I am only one who uses my computer. I tried to set a password for a
program.

start/do Windows XP as administrator. Sarusan

What OS? Home or Pro?
Any administrative level user should work fine.

WinXP Pro is OS.
I tried as usual (i..e, logged in as usual my name and my password). But
the software did not work.
So, now I forgot the login name for my WinXP because it was installed when I
was using diaper:-)
Could you please tell me where/how to find my log in name as administrator?

TIA. Craig

At the welcome screen (assuming you have one) press the key combination:

CTRL+ALT+DEL

twice in a row. Then enter (as the username):

administrator

And whatever password you setup when you installed.

Don't recall that password?

Hack your password:

When I pressed "CTRL+ALT+DEL", it prompted Windows Task Manager.
I repeated a few times, I am getting the same task manager.

You missed the most important part...

"At the welcome screen (assuming you have one)..."

Meaning before you log on or after you log off..
