You didn't say what OS your running. If it's XP press F8 after p.o.s.t. screen (before logon) to boot into safe mode. This should give you both account names, your user account and administrator account. Choose administrator and type your admin password then change your security settings.

If you've demoted the Administrator and hadn't created a new user with administrative privileges, you could be in trouble. I did this with 2k3 and got in no end of strife.
