Can’t Login to admin after installing sample database

This is really weird, I installed my site easily using Bluehost’s automatic setup function. During the installation it assigned me a random admin name and password. I used it several times to log-in to my admin panel. Then I installed sample database, now I can’t login anymore with the same name and pass. And I can’t retrieve any log-in information because it never asked me to enter an email during automatic installation. I need help please.
Thanks

When you installed the sample database, it more than likely erase or overwrote your current admin login.  I’d recommend going into the database, changing the e-mail address to yours, and then on the admin panel theres a link for forgotten passwords.  Otherwise you will have to do a fresh install.  How did you install it the first time?

Thanks hackia,

Just FYI, the sample data should be loaded BEFORE you install Magento or you run into a series of oddities such as this.
