Admin Account - access problem

Posted: 08-17-2003, 09:44 PM
I don't know how I could be so stupid. I bought a PC with
WINDOWS-XP pre-installed. New to WINDOWS-XP,I then set up
an administrator account with a user name like "Admin Acct
Alex" or something like it. Unfortunately I did not write
down the exact name on a sheet of paper for remembering it.
When I tried to log on to the administrator account by
using every thinkable combination of the name I might have
entered, I did not succeed. I had hoped that entering just
the password would be sufficient to get access to the
system. I definitely know the exact spelling of the
password I had entered, bedause I use this password for
many other purposes.

What can I do? Would I actually have to run the "Recovery
CD-ROM that came with the PC" and start all over agan?
