skippy,

If your system adheres to the default, you should have access to the System Administrator account. Boot to Safe Mode and at the Welcome screen press Ctrl-Alt-Delete twice. At the login screen enter Administrator as the user name and leave the password blank (it should be null by default). If you are able to log on in that account you can go to Start|Control Panel|User Accounts and reset or remove the password from your administrator group user account.
