Have you tried logging in using either administrator or Administrator - and leaving the password blank?

Did you ever make a password reset disk? If so now is the time to use it. If no password reset disk you have a little work to in all probability... And when all is well again, and you can login as per - make that password reset disk "immediately"; label it and keep safe and "handy"

This post has a few ideas too; note the one part way down re' getting into safe-mode; it may be all you need?

When you do regain login, suggest you make a note of your details in a few safe places... Also perhaps email them to yourself and ensure you leave a copy of the email in your on-line/pop3 account.

Also ensure you have similar aide-memoires for the default admin account (whichever form you use and whether or not you create a password rather than leaving it blank). And if your normal login is an admin level too... then perhaps consider having a non-admin account for general use, and only use "your" admin level login when actually needed.

However... If you can't login as administrator (with or without the capital A) and have to one of the recovery routes... Might be wise first to safeguard all data (personal files etc.) so as to minimise risk of losing them in the process of regaining login.

With that in mind, go to ubuntu.com; download the free ISO for ubuntu. It's a Linux variant. Burn the ISO to a dvd and boot with that dvd. It will load itself into RAM only(takes wee while). The hard drive is then just a resource for Linux OS installed/running in RAM. Locate your files and copy to external storage - typically dvd, and if possible to an external hard drive. Check/verify the copies are accessible on at least one other working system. Then label and keep safe.

Then set about regaining login knowing your files are safe elsewhere -should any of the various options put them at risk.

Always wise to have all your personals duplicated off the system; regularly updated and checked too. That way if "anything" goes awry with your system, those files are for the most part already secure elsewhere. Sadly so many don't do this come to wish they had.
