When you remove a computer from the domain into a workgroup, a rule of thumb is always change the local administrator password before rebooting. As soon you reboot you need to use one of the local accounts that are on the machine to access the machine. If you did not do this you will need to use a 3rd party tool to reset the local admin password.
