the best way is to add a new admin account in safe mode

reboot and hold F8, go into the "safe mode with command prompt"

type the following commands:

net user admin2 /add
net localgroup Administrators admin2 /add
net localgroup Users admin2 /delete

that'll give you a new admin user called 'admin2' with no password
