Did you wish to ask something?
If so - please give more details.

Seriously... "more details".

What Operating System are you running (Windows XP is assumed - Home,
Professional, Media Center, TabletPC, x64 is *not*.)?
What patch level (SP2 at least?)
How did you get to this point?
What have you tried?
When you did safe mode - did you log in (try to) as the username
If XP Professional - what happens when you press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice
at the welcome screen and enter 'administrator' as the username?

In safe mode...
Start button --> RUN --> control userpasswords2 --> OK

That should allow you to verify/add users and the group(s) those
users may be in.


Copy that text to a text file, save it as controlpanelrestrictionrestore.reg
and merge it (double-click and answer yes) into your registry.
