If XP Professional, reboot and press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice in a row - log in as
the user "administrator" and for the password, just press ENTER. (blank
password..) May/may not work..

If you can get logged on as ADMINISTRATOR, simply go in now and change the
other users password to something you will now know.

Other options...
