dykzeulb, unless you use a 3rd party software, you won't be able to 'crack back in' so to speak. I once forgot my admin password (foolish mistake i won't make again) and i had to get a software utiliyt to reset my admin password.

You're just have to get your bro to stop messin around on your PC and tell you what the admin password is or simply reinstall XP and create a 'User' account for your brother.

Right...and next time rip away controls of those sorts of abilities from your brother. Once you can back admin rights.....post again and we will walk you through how to do this right so that he won't be able to even get remotely close to messing with these types of changes again.
