xp password

Hi, I have windows xp. 3 years ago I put a password on my pc whilst I went on holiday.Then I removed it. I cannot remember what the password is and now it will not let me set another password as it is asking me for existing password which I dont know. It is the admin account.

by the way can you log onto the account or does it prompt you for a pass on login?
