You still have the built-in administrator.

To enable please follow these steps:

Press - Windows key + X
click "Computer Management"
locate and click "local Users and groups"
click "Users" - Note: this is where you are in the screenshot
Right Click "Administrator"
Click "set password.."
Click "Proceed"
Type in a suitable password and click "Ok"
Open the "Administrator"
in the general tab - Untick "Account Disabled"
Click "Ok"


Sign out of user and login in as the Administrator account you have just enabled.

Just found the Tutorial section has a post on this as well:

Cheers,

Use the Offline NT Password and Registry editor to boot and unlock/enable/reset the password for the built-in administrator account.

Link to the software below:
