Goto Control Panel; select user accounts; Under Pick Task, select Change the way users log on or off; uncheck welcome screen. (I am not sure if you need to restart) the next login should appear as a text login. set the the username as Administrator and enter your password. Presto, You are in!

This tip is straight from

If you want to log in as Administrator, but it is not show on the Welcome screen,

1. Hold the Ctrl-Alt key and press Del twice.
2. This will bring up the normal login and you can log on as Administrator

To unhide the Administrator account so it does show up:

1. Start Regedit
2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon \ SpecialAccounts \ UserList
3. Unhide the Administrator key by giving it a value of 1
