You can restore access to the account via the utilities.

Why don't you change your title of your topic related to your problem first?

First off don't give someone access to the admin panel that you don't even know. You should see his/her action for a while and review the work.

Password is too easy so that would of helped. Do you also have a hotmail account linked to the founder account or even yahoo? Those are easy to hack into. If the creation email hasn't been changed I can reset the password for you. Just PM me forum address and creation email.
