|There are a few ways to access admin. Either you can hack it to get the old password or you can simply reset it to blank(nothing). Ophcrak live, Astrumi, loginrecovery, john and many others can help.|
Before you try that on the admin login you might try control alt delete keys and then escape key. It sometimes brings you back to the users. Second is to type the user you want in if you can.
Worse comes to work get a linux Mint 8 live cd and boot to it to recover your files then reload the whole enchilada.
