XP pro login

Help urgently needed
Recently loaded SP2 and had no problems for a few days. Now when the Windows XP page opens, it asks for a username and password. I have Supervisor and one other account on the system. Neither password is accepted, and as I stupidly had previously deleted the "guest" account can't use that.
Can anyone help/suggest how I can now get into my system, or have I really messed up big-time

one of the PCA discs has a Windows xp lost password registry editor where you can reset your passwords but I don't know how it works as I don't have XP. Try this site click here download it and extract it on to a floppy disc and boot up form it. It that doesn't work try these click here .

Thanks to everyone for their help. I managed to to change the passwords in the end by using a prog called Locksmith.
Once again, many thanks

Providing there wasn't a password on the administrator account you could have booted into safe mode and logged in via admin and changed the passwords..
