On behalf of my dad::

He tried to go on his computer today but got the error message "winlogon.exe bad image" etc.. I told him to try safe mode but he still got that error message.

Any ideas? I'm really stuck :confused:

Actually you have a couple of options.

1 >> you can just do a reinstall using the XP installation CD if you have it.

Instructions here: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

2 >> if you don't have that, consult the Vendor information for your model computer to see what non-destructive recovery options are offered, if any.

3 >> you can physically remove the hard drive and either slave it to another computer or buy an "IDE to USB drive converter" to access the drive from another computer and recover data.
