Welcome to the forum, cssplaya. By default the 'Administrator' account doesn't have password protection, it's only set if you give it one. Despite this, Windows will always prompt for a password even when that account is not password protected. In that event you just leave it blank and continue, then if it prompts you again have you tried simply leaving it blank again for a second time and continuing?
