  1. Windows should not allow a person to make this mistake...but I digress...

    A repair installation should recreate the administrator account without losing the currently installed apps and data.
  2. If you do not have the Windows XP disc to do repair,

    you can also try out

    Offline NT Password & Registry Editor
    http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

    will allow you to reset password and promote your standard user to administrator.

    Good Luck
