Do you run any type of Anti-Spyware software?

Try loading Bios Defaults...

*Tapp on F1 to get into the Bios Screen
*Press F5 to load setup defaults
*Press F10 to save and exit

Also try doing a Power Drain before you load the Setup defaults

When your computer first powers on and goes beep , before it loads anything start tapping F8 once a second until you get a boot options menu and choose last known good. IF this solves things good. If not repeat and choose safe mode.

Try logging in with user name Administrator. If you never protected this account leave the password box empty.
IF this works, go to control panel/ users and create a new user account with full admin priveleges.
Now reboot and try logging into windows in that new account.

I have tried safe mode, default bios settings, last known good configuration, administrator account and have gotten nowhere. what would a system drain do, is that in the bios?

Hers how to do a Repair install:

Configure your computer to start from the CD-ROM drive. Then insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

If you have xp sp2 installed it needs to be incorporated into your xp disk or it will not offer the repair option only the clean install.
