Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Administrative Tools.
In the new window open Computer Management.

I'd suggest booting into Safe Mode (press F8 after the POST information is finished on bootup) and then you should see an option for Administrator. If you can sign in successfully there, go to Control Panel and create a new account under User Accounts. Boot normally after that and see if you can sign in the new account.
Two questions: 1) is this XP or Vista? and 2) did you recently make any significant changes to the software (namely try to change the Certificate of Authenticity)? If what I suggested works, I'd say boot into Safe Mode again and then run System Restore for Windows. Set the system back to about a week ago and try logging in normally.

Power on your computer and press F8 repeatedly. Choose Safe Mode. Use Administrator as your username with no password. Go to Start - Control Panel and User Accounts. Choose your account and reset your password.
Hope this resolves your problem.
