I am using windows xp home edition on my laptop and I cannot recall my
password ever since I've been using this pc. It is the computer administrator
user account and i can't get in. What can I do?

When XP Home is initially installed it creates a hidden Administrator
account that has a blank password.

Boot to Safe Mode. At the logon screen select Administrator. Leave the
password blank. See you can log on. Then go to the Control panel->User
accounts and reset the password for the account you normally log on with.

You could also just press ctrl+alt+delete two times to get to the windows
2000 style logon screen. Just enter Administrator (and NO password) and hit
enter... you should be able to log on. If not, you could try something like
