    i think i have serious problems that i have created, it all started when i ran windows washer, it deleted some important stuff,so i reinstalled xp(from hd-as i dont have cds,comp didnt come with them)updated windows,updated again,now at sp2,ok-first big problem, after trying to get around the log on screen i unclicked the "use welcome screen" button, still had to click ok on boot, came here and found the way around this(control userpasswords2),did that,reboot-cant log in because incorrect password, but i never had one!!so now when i boot-up it gets caught between old style and new style log in, what can i do to fix this? im tired of going through safe mode! also when in safe mode if you go to users it shows admin and owner, if i can get in under reg. windows it only shows owner. pleez help i thinkz im goin stoopit!!! thanks in advance,david

    reboot into safe mode, run system restore and see if you have a restore point. start>run> type MSCONFIG and click launch system restore. I would personally hold off on SP2.

    For your question about the Admin login, it's suppose to show during safe mode.

    If you re-ran set-up from the HD versus formatting and reinstalling you are not going to solve problems that you had.
