1. Make a backup of C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\ntuser.dat
2. Create another administrator account on the machine (admin2)
3. Logon as the second administrator (admin2)
4. Open the System Properties Panel
5. Go to advanced
6. Under User Profiles Click Settings
7. Delete the profile for machinename\Administrator
8. Log back on as administrator
9. Delete the account admin2.

Thanks Sundaram Narayanan for replying. Kind of you to take the time.

Unfortunately while I was waiting for you response I tinkered on my own.

1. I created another administrator account on the machine (admin2)
2. Logged on as the second administrator (admin2)
3. Copied all my files from inside the Administrator.bak folder except the
ntuser.dat file (Which actually had my old files in it), which is in the
documents and settings folder in the C: drive, to the new Administrator
folder the system was automatically making for me. (Which was actually call
Administrator).
4. Moved a copy of the old Administrator.bak folder to the C: drive just in
case.

I was able to log back in as Administrator now. I deleted the second
administrator account and that was done.

My way I did loose some simple program setting, like which files windows
media player will play, but nothing important.

Sundaram Narayanan way looks easier, and hopefully doesn't loose that info.
I just wanted to put my info here so others who have this problem have a
couple of ways to fix it. It's not really that big of a deal, so don't
worry, atleast not for me anyway.
