    Windows XP creates the "administrator" account during the installation process by default. This is the account that it most often utilizes during safemode. Some OEM installations use this account as well at first start-up. Not exactly the thing I prefer, myself.

    However, the retail version of XP (non-OEM), also during installation, should prompt you to create any number of accounts you choose. These accounts are all "admin" accounts by default until you change this after set-up in the "user accounts" applet of the control panel.

    You can get all the files either in C:\documents and settings\administrator
    at welcome screen press alt+ctrl+del twice and it will take u to a login box where u can type administrator and the password for aht account and it will log in, where u can take your files and copy them somewhere else.

    but you shouldn't have been using the administartor account in the first place.
