It is a bit hard to follow exactly what has happened, but if you have XP
Home, start the computer and go into Safe Mode. Get into Safe Mode by
repeatedly tapping the F8 key as the machine is starting up. In Safe
Mode, log in with the normally hidden Administrator account. Unless you
changed it, the default password is a blank. Once in, you can go to the
User Accounts applet in Control Panel and make new accounts. Make one
for yourself - do *not* call it Administrator but rather call it
something like "Jerry" - giving that new account administrative
