I have gremlins in my registry but my main problem is loss of administration rights, if I could regain these I should be able to sort it out. Unfortunately I am blocked from doing anything and I can't create another user. Before I have to reinstall XP I would welcome suggestions

Try this in a batch file:

net user new_username new_password /add
net localgroup Administrators new_username /add
net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited

My thanks to dmneoblade for taking the time to answer my query.
Unfortunately it did not work, but I am still able to run and I may come across a solution without having to re-install XP.
