Ok, my windows xp computer won't let me log in.
I boot it up and the i see the log in screen.
I click on my account and type the password and press enter.
it says' applying personal settings' then it goes back to the log in screen.
I check for caps and such. I still have the problem.
I click on the other account with no password and the same thing happens.

Can you help me? I'm really worried :C

my suggestion is still the clean install, but i'd wait and see if there's a way to salvage it before you do that.

I'm going to employ the classic mediocre tech repairman cliche on this one: I've never heard of that happening before. : \

Then again, Windows XP is hardly my area of expertise. -.-

is your computer plugged in?

...is your computer turned on?

make sure you purge the hard drive before you install something new....i didn't way back when, and MAAAAN did it lag. >_<

Tried booting in safe mode?

I guess asking if you have a recovery disc would be ridiculous.

Safe mode still didn't work ><

I had an iso of windows xp pro sp3 and activated and I just burned it to a disk.
I'm not gonna install 2k. and it sucks that i have to reinstall everything ;_;


-EDIT-
Found out what happened.
I got the win32 virus. xD

just remember to keep up your virus scans, back up frequently, and stop downloading random stuff from unsavory places, ne. >.>;;

More like, know your unsavory places when you download. -w-; And remember - well-seeded torrents are pretty much always clean. Nobody seeds a virus.
YOU COULD HAVE PREVENTED THIS

CanaryTan

MORE PROBLEMS AHOY~

Ok, so, i don't have much installed on my computer and all my C: space has been taken up. (Bad grammar. orz)

We're going to wipe the hard drive clean including the os.
Then we're going to install 2000 since it will most likely run smoother.
