What's the Point of a Administrator on a single user Home Laptop that cannot be accessed when needed. How Can I change this if I need to use it

Elevated command prompt

Open the Start Menu. Click on All Programs and Accessories, then right click on Command Prompt and click on Run as administrator.

Fruit Bat /\0/\ If I can Explain, I bought this HP Laptop about four years ago it was a Display model so it had been setup and backed up to the Hard Drive rather than Discs, I phoned HP and they sent both a Restore CD with Drivers and a XP Home oem CD free. But I had to clean up the disc to some degree As they had a user Name and some files on it. I went into regedit to change the User but this may have had a Password that was not changed or Removed as if I try logging off then click on administrator It will not let me With log in Bock blank or otherwise. How can I find out if they set a Admin Password without Deleting my own name etc
