    Right click on "My Computer" and click on "Manage", in
    the left hand window, expand "Local Users and Groups" you
    should find what you are looking for. Alternativly:
    Start>Run, Type: control userpasswords2, and hit enter.

  3. If you changed one of your accounts to a limited account, you can't use
    that account to go back to computer administrator. If you don't have any
    other accounts in XP Pro, press Clt-Alt-Del, Ctl-Alt-Del at the Welcome
    screen and logon to "Administrator" with the password you entered when
    you setup XP. In Home, reboot, press F8 after the BIOS screen and logon
    to Administrator with no password in safe mode.

    Then go to the User Accounts control panel and change your account back
    to a computer administrator.
