To preface this: I installed software yesterday on my Dell Inspiron 9400 w/ Windows XP Home and since then I cannot log on. I have a bit of a background in computer repair and I'm familiar with the recovery console so I was hoping I could activate the system restore from there. Safe mode is not an option. What I believe happened is that I had SP2 and not SP3 and the software was only compatible with SP3, though I can't verify right now or I don't know how. Is that possible without booting to find out? I have a good deal of my machine backed up but I am fighting for the most recent two months' work. Would very much appreciate any help!

- Windows XP Home on Dell Inspiron 9400 with SP2* I think
- Error: "STOP: c000021a" Windows logon process system terminated unexpectedly at 0xc0000022.
- Software installed was Avid Pro Tools SE

I don't have access to an XP disc right now but I can within a day or two thanks to my school. As I mentioned I have an external with 90% of my critical data on it already; if it were possible to manually extract the files I want to salvage by copying them to the external I would love to try that also. However, the problem I've encountered is "Access Denied" when trying to navigate to the documents and settings folder. Is having an XP cd a prerequisite for going into recovery console and trying this stuff? I will work on getting one. Thanks ahead of time.

Hi and welcome to TSF you could try hooking up to a usb external caddy and connecting to another computer or even this Use Ubuntu Live CD to Backup Files from Your Dead Windows Computer - How-To Geek

Trying this at the moment! Download will be finished in 20 minutes and I'll burn the iso after. Thanks for the suggestion!

Copied the files to the external. Thanks again! What about accessing system restore through the recovery console though, is that possible If I had an XP disc? I'm reading about accessing the snapshot of a restore point and copying the system, software, security, etc..
