Windows XP not showing an Administrator. Changed user (which was the Administrator to regular user and now there is no Administrator showing and won't let me do anything. How do I get Administrator back? Actually I want to FDisk the whole thing if I can do it without having Administrator rights. Any ideas w/b appreciated.

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Xp Pro or Home??

You don't need to be an Admin to re-install XP.. Just pop the XP cd into the cd-rom drive and re-boot your system.. As long as the first boot device in BIOS is set for the cd-rom, you should get two options when the computer starts..

Boot from hard-drive or boot from cd-rom

Choose boot from cd-rom and follow the prompts!!
