Win XP Pro - No users have admin privileges, no admin account, no guest
account; only one account with limited access. Is there any way to restore
an admin account without re-installing windows?

Simply log in using the built-in Administrator account (which
cannot be deleted) and modify the desired account(s). By design, the
only way to log into the Administrator account of WinXP Home is to
reboot into Safe Mode. For WinXP Pro, pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL twice at
the Welcome Screen will produce the standard login dialog box.
