accidently deleted user account

  hiwatt 17:52 05 Jan 2008

Hi folks,I've stupidly accidently deleted the "everyone" account on my computer.I am the only user but when I boot it boots as normal but hangs at the windows xp screen with no box to enter my password.Does anyone know how I can get my computer back?I've tried safe mode to no avail.Thanks.

To run a System Restore at boot up for WinXP, do the following:

1. Start your computer then repeating press "F8" key until the Boot Menu appeared then select option "Safe Mode with Command Prompt" or similar

2. At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and press ENTER

3. Follow instructions to restore to a previous, functional state

Tap f8 as you start the computer, choose 'safe mode' then try system restore.

Hi folks,it wont even start in safe mode.I tried safe mode with command prompt and it does the same thing.Boots into safe mode but hangs at the welcome screen with no box to enter my password.I got a loan of a windows xp(home edition)disc but my computer has xp pro,could I still use the cd to do a repair?I'm not really sure what I'm doing so ANY help is greatly appreciated.Thanks.
