You can log in as administrator, create a new account with full administrator rights, log in to the new account, then finally delete the administrator account.

You can do this in the group policy editor. Click start/run and type gpedit.msc. Go to computer configuration/security options. In the right pane you should see Accounts: rename administrator account. It's currently set as administrator. You can change it here.
