  1. When you turn on your computer..

    When it gets to the welcome screen press the combination of Alt,Control,Delete together twice.

    A box will appear. Enter "Administrator" (without the quotes) for the user name and leave the password blank.

    Click Ok or just press Enter.

    Go to Start>Control Panel>User accounts, and change the password for your account.

  2. Assuming your profile has administrative or power user rights, you can reset the administrator password from the command prompt by typing:

    net user Administrator *
    <enter.
    <enter.

    The two (2) enters is when it asks for a new password and to confirm your password, both <enter.'s means there is no password, then you should be able to freely log into admin without typing a password. This applies to XP and higher.

    That would be fine, if OP could only get into Windows to do that.
