Click start, control panel, user accounts then user accounts, your name should have computer administrator, the other one is the XP administrator account

Best to leave the account named 'Administrator' (the one created by Windows setup) as it is, and create a new account for yourself with the same administrator priveleges. It's bad practice to rename the existing default
administrator account. It's likely to mess up the names of the various account folders if you do.
