Try booting up into safe mode (tap F8 repeatedly as the machine starts up.) You should then see an adminstrator option on your welcome screen that you can select, and then make your changes from there.

Save the whales, feed the hungry, free the mallocs.

What I did once was just go to the logon screen and press control-alt-tab, and an account called User popped up. Of course, thats probably something an admin form the past had done.
You are such a good friend that if you and me were the last two people trapped on a sinking boat with only 1 life vest left, i would remember and pray for you every day.
