To me this sounds like your computer was previously connected to a domain environment and you have now moved it to a WORKGROUP. For example when you were on the network in work if you opened "Control Panel\System and Security\System" under "Computer name, domain and workgroup settings" you would have seen something like, 'exampledomain.local' but now you see your PC name, EXAMPLEPCNAME for example.
The reason you were able to log into the PC to change it to a workgroup in the first instance is because Windows caches credentials. This allowed you to log in as if you were in work and make the changes you did.
In regards to the Username/Password you are seeing now this would be the default local administrator account that was set when the PC was first set up outside of the domain environment. In other words, the user name is really EXAMPLEPCNAME\administrator no longer exampledomain\administrator.
I hope this makes sense.
It's very hard to imagine all the crazy things that things really are like.
Electrons act like waves.. no they don't exactly, they act like particles.. no they don't exactly.
