If you have the restore media or the original disk

You should be able to get in to the administrator account. If you have Microsoft branded media, you can also ring Microsoft. There is a number burned into the CD that validates the copy.

If you try to fix from CD, you will need an external drive and I am not certain how NT is going to feel about that.

Good luck!
