    If the Administrator's password or username hasn't been change then just:

    - Restart your computer

    - At the logon screen press CTRL+ALT+DELETE two times(twice), and type in Administrator in the username feild and then click ok

    - now go to the start menu and click Run
    and type "control userpassword2" without qoutes and click OK

    - On the User, choose the account you want to reset the password
    and click reset password.

    - Type the new password or just leave it
    and confirm the password again
    and then OK

    - restart the Pc and try logging on to the account again

    you can always change the name of the account at the control panel once you have logged on
