if its XP home, boot it into safe mode & the administrator acocunt will be shown in the user list (if not, press CTRL+ALT+DEL Twice)...

there isn't a password on the admin account so just login & change it

Reboot into Safe Mode, and you get to choose the actual account called "Administrator", which has a blank password on XP Home.

Press F8 while it's booting up, before the Windows XP Home logo appears, and choose Safe Mode.

if the admin account isnt listed when you boot into safemode (it should be) then press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice to show the classic login box, just type administrator as the user & password leave it plank - click OK

ONLY works on XP Home tho - you can't set an administrator password on XP Home, its real shit! Very unsecure!
