Press and Hold "Ctrl" and "Alt" while pressing Delete twice.

Now type in "Administrator" for the username, and leave the password field blank. Press Enter. Now got to "Start->Control Panel->User Accounts->Your Useraccount here->Change Password"

By defualt, there isn't a password assoisated to this account.

Hope that helps.

you do the "Ctrl, Alt + Delete" thing while the "Welcome Screen" is being displayed.
