Windows XP – How to log in as administrator

So I installed a Windows XP VM the other day with a corporate ISO file. The initial login screen showed the administrator account and another corporate specific account. I logged in as administrator and applied the latest patches. Upon rebooting the system, only the corporate specific account was available. I was unable to find a way to log in as administrator and I did not know the password for the corporate specific account.
How could I log in as administrator?
