uninstalling the demo completely?

Can you get into safe mode (is there such a thing in XP?) and delete everything from there - or go back to your last "backup".

Could be really unkind and ask why you didn't - er "phone a friend"? - but I won't lol

and I'm not well up on XP (so this might not help) but can you boot into Windows with a boot disk?

Or alternatively, change the boot sequence in your BIOS temporarily to CD-ROM drive and try and repair from there?

System Restore to before you installed WWTBM

that the monitor settings for the game are incorrect. I know some games will only play properly with 256 colours set.

If you can get into your computer via the installation CD, you could try changing the monitor settings. - Can't think of anything else that might help at the moment.
