Try using this cd has utilities on it to reset the passwords.

Boot off of cd
under "File system Tools" (F3)
go to page 2 then option (F6)

Read the prompts and you'll be list all available
user accounts and edit the passwords.

BTW- You will be able to enable the account if you had disabled it. This is confirmed I use this utility frequently. Let me know if you have any trouble.

Take out the hardisk, use other pc (with winxp pro install) to backup out all your data. You need to reinstall the winxp.
Or you can try type user name as "Admin", because winxp itself will have admin account install by default.
