...corrupted user account. Solution: Boot into safe mode, and use the hidden Administrator account to create a new user account (suggest: one with admin privileges). You may wish to try "system Restore" - at safe mode, or "Last Good Configuration" - at the boot menu, before that.

The solution is to ask the owner of the computer to give you administrative access.

i AM the administrator.. but if you read my thread closely, i cannot get onto my admin account because nothing will load up?

Try booting to SAFE MODE

If you can't login to your administer account, try the built-in account called "Administrator".

For more info, Google: xp hidden administrator account
