I dont have a network administrator.

I am in a stand-alone in a workgroup of computers that share a HSIC on a
Lan.

I'm identified by my computer name and description.

I have 2 user accounts on my ( XP-SP2 ) PC, Administrator/Owner and
Limited/ Guest account ( which basically has no priveleges, rights
whatsoever ).

I somehow f*%k@! up changing the password on my administrator account and
now cannot log on as administrator and not allowed to access any
files/folders.


What is the best solution with the least data loss?
