I have a laptop running xp pro and for some reason its locked me out. I have tried to log in as normal but its says that my account is locked out and to contact my administrator, which of course is me!!

Can anyone help please??

On the log in screen, press 'ctrl alt delete' (you might have to do it twice) and see if you can log in as administrator with no password.
