The default password is a blank. If you changed it to something else,
then no one but you knows what it is. In that case, use NTpasswd to
change the Administrator password to a blank.

That password would be whatever you, or someone else using your
computer with administrative privileges, set it to be. By default, the
WinXP Home Administrator's password is blank.

And, on Home, the Administrator's account only works in Safe Mode.
