Before the burn of the CD, look for an option that states Bootable CD. You have to make the CD bootable. You might also look on the internet for the term LIVE CD.

The following link will take you to a cd image to make a bootable CD which when run loads a linux based utility that allows you to reset any local user passwords.
I have used this when the local admin account has been disabled as well on a PC. I have found it best to set the password to be blank rather than using it to define a known password. Once ou are in windows you can then create your own User account and then delete the one on it.
Also try pressing Control + Alt + Delete twice and see if it drops back to the classic login screen and change the user to Administrator with no password.

you can search for a password boot disk which will disable the administrator password.
There are dozens of these types of programs but one program I recommend is windows password reset 6.0
Download the iso file and burn it to a disk to create the boot disk, that simple.
Configure your pc or laptop to boot in the cd drive,
insert the CD and it would boot then just disable the password and restart.
Took about 5 minutes for the whole process.

SOURCE: Forgot sign in password
If you could sign in your computer from a restart with a list of users on the screen, those users might not with a password. So you can try sign in with any of those user name you ever saw and without password. If the account you sign in with is with the administrative permission, you will be able to reset the password of any user accounts on your computer. (I will give you all the detailed steps with a Microsoft document linked below.) If your computer is connected to a network, you can try to login with the accounts with the administrator's permissions on the network and reset any password of any user accounts on your computer. They might be assigned the administrator's rights on your computer too.
If all the user accounts are not good for the login on your computer or without administrator's permission, you can reset the password still if you have created a password reset disk.
If those two approaches do not work, you might need to reinstall Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 on your computer and all the applications.
The detailed steps are described by the following document.
If you like to backup your data before reinstallation to make sure your data will be safe, you can move the hard disk to another computer and copy your data over. Please don't hesitate to turn to me if any questions.
