I tried installing Japanese language support onto my Windows XP SP 3, but upon restarting (as it prompted me to do), I can't log into Windows. I select my user name, it says "Loading personal settings..." but then it dumps me back on to the log in screen, allowing me to re-click my name to the same effect.

I didn't have a password set, as it is my home computer. I just had it set to the log in screen since I built the machine, just for me to click on my user name.

I tried doing safe mode and logging into the administrator, but the same thing happens.

I tried reverting back to the "last good configuration" at the menu that comes after spamming F8, but that didn't change anything.

Debug dumps me at the same menu.

I have no idea what to do. Help, please!

EDIT: I have the Windows XP SP 2 disc, which is how I was able to log in. However, I don't have the password or registration key handy.

EDIT 2: I tried installing/fixing windows, but it didn't work (gave an error saying the signature was invalid, error 800b0100, setup log files should contain more information). I can get to the c:\ command line. From there, is there any way to initiate a system restore to previous settings, or change the registry to skip the log in screen?
