You could try logging on as the Built-In Administrator.
To do this, simply hold "Ctrl" and "Alt" and press "Del" twice while the "Welcome Screen" is displayed.
You should get a box come up asking for a username and password.

Type in "Administrator" as the username (without quotations) and leave the password field blank.
Now just change the password for your user account and log-off ;-)

This will only work if you haven't created a password for the Administrator account (which most people don't because they don't know that it exists)
You can also access this account from "Safe Mode"
