I cannot remember my windows XP Pro password. I am an administrator. Need to install software and change to a dynamic ip address.

I have a pc that has been idle (not in use) for about 8 months. I was planning on using it again. I tried every password I have used in the past 5 years. None work. I have tried basic others like "password", "administrator", etc.
The person who built this pc for me is not reachable. He has moved with no forwarding info.
Is there a way to either reset the administrator's password, my password (I am an administrator), or upgrade the permissions of an existing user to be an/the administrator? I can login to an account that is not an administrator.
Or am I SOL?
