Try Safe Mode admin account

These versions of Windows are so antique that I'm not sure how good my memory is, but with some of the ancient versions of Windows you could boot to Safe Mode and log on with the admin account. If you can do that, you can create a new user ID via the User Accounts applet of the Control Panel.

Good luck.
