reboot your pc while hitting F5. This should bring up safe mode with the option to log in as either the administrator or any other account on there. Assuming u haven't put a pass on the admin, then u should be able to access that and go into the user profiles and edit your pass.

did it give u an option to get into the admin side? or just your normal user account?

If u cant get into the admin side you're screwed.

EDIT: Maybe not, u may be able to repair the OS and retrieve your data with your winxp cd.

if your drive is set with reasonable partitions (i.e. one part of the drive is your operating system and the other is your data) then just format the O/S portion and reinstall XP
