WindowsXP Won't let me log into windows!

Hello, a few days ago, my windowsxp started to count down telling me to change the password. I tried to change the password, but I have never set a password before so I don't know what my old password is. Now it wont even let me log into windows without changing my old password to a new one. Can anyone help me out? Thanks alot

If you had not given any password just press enter to see if it would allow you to go inside

Log in as administrator and change your password.

Is this computer part of a domain? If so, ask your administrator for help.

You can try to log in as the administrator as jvuz says.  Often during the initial setup of a WinXP computer, the administrator password is left blank.  
To log in as the administrator, press ctrl-alt-delete TWICE at the windows logon screen.  This should bring up a traditional logon prompt where you actually have to type in your username and password.  Try username: administrator and leave the password empty.
Is this computer a Dell, or Gateway?  Did a friend set this up for you?  More info is good.
