Exclamation Help! Locked out of User Profile

When I was rebooting my comp after installing updates I accidentally held down the enter key after the XP boot logo, and since my profile has a password the computer locked me out of my file because it thought I tried to enter the password too many times. Right now I'm writing this message on the Administrator profile, but I want to know how to get back to mine. The computer said something about being locked out of my file and to contact the Adminstrator. Im running XP Pro. Thanks in advance.

Usually it's set to a specific time, so you can wait it out or you can change it in:
Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Account Policies > Account Lockout Policy...and edit those values.
