Admin Password

I have tried to do a Repair on XP Pro. Each time I try I am asked for my admin password. I simply do not have one!. Is there a way around this?

Thanks for the response. I have tried both of thos options. I am the only person on the computer so have no need for passwords.

This might work:

start > control panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Security Options - scroll down to Recovery Console > Allow automatic administrative logon - set it to Enabled
