    There`s what looks like a similar problem here - http://www.techspot.com/vb/all/windows/t-65-Delete-Administrator-Account-in-XP-Pro.html

    It solved someones problem,anyway.

    "..enter safe mode with command prompt. You should be able to hit ctrl+alt+delete twice to
    pull up a log-in screen again and re-enter administrator and whatever password you may have.
    That will take you to a command prompt “C:\ documents and settings/administrator.” Now you
    are in business.Simply type “control” at the prompt and press enter. This should bring up a message
    that allows you to enter Windows recovery function, and it will also open the control panel. Click on
    Administrative Tools and then Local Security Policies to bring up the settings. On the left side bar you
    can select Local Policies and then Security Options and Enable the Administrator Account the same
    way you may have disabled it."

    Downlod the "Active Password Changer_v3.0" from http://www.password-changer.com/ and boot your computer with it. Your Pass would be reseted.
