Did you install W7 on this PC?  If so, during the install I think it asks you to create a user name and password.  On the W7 boxes on our network, doing that also seems to disable the "administrator" account and makes the account that I set up the admin,
Amnonm

you can type the IP for the computer as local like this

192.168.1.3\Administrator

I am the only second person having win 7 in our envirment and under User Account of Control Panel it is my name listed there instead of Administrator name. I did prep this laptop and someone else joined laptop to our domain. I tried that person's login name, my loing name and Administrator  and none of them worked.

I don't know the ip since I can not  get that far.
