I can't use Windows XP's Recovery Console, since I have changed the name of the Administrator account.

Is there any solution?

You may be able to modify the account using Offline NT Password and Registry editor. I know it is able to modify existing users, but I don't have the right test environment to check whether it can rename an account.
