    The default password is a blank. If you changed it to something else,
    then no one but you knows what it is. In that case, use NTpasswd to
    change the Administrator password to a blank.

    That password would be whatever you, or someone else using your
    computer with administrative privileges, set it to be. By default, the
    WinXP Home Administrator's password is blank.

    And, on Home, the Administrator's account only works in Safe Mode.
