    That's strange. Maybe you have a virus. You have to create a new admin account or make the current account the admin account.

    If this is XP Home, boot into safe mode and log on with the username Administrator, no / blank password.
    If it's XP Pro, hit Ctrl + Alt + Del two times and then type Administrator into the username box and blank / no password
