Computer locked by administrator

Switched on computer...won't let me in...says computer locked by administrator...needs password. As I am the only one who uses the computer and left the password bit blank at setup I am puzzled...I'm running XP Pro.

Try this. While you are restarting your amchine press the F8 key to get the "Boot Mode" menu. Choose "Safe Mode". Once you get to the Log in screen log in as administrator with no password. This will allow you to reset forgotten local admin/users passwords
