You need to be an administrator to do that. Login as administrator and change your account back. If you are using the welcome screen, the administrator account is hidden. If you have xp home, you will need to boot into safe mode. In Xp Pro, hit ctrl-al-del twice at the welcome screen then login as "administrator".
