I'm using XP Pro and recently ran into the Trojan Horse Flooder.Ake problem that originated with AVG. Anyway, I uninstalled AVG and can now boot my computer without problem.

However, it seems my default user account is missing. It does not appear on the welcome screen, nor on the "User Accounts" tool in the control panel. I tried this: http://support.microsoft.com/KB/297221, but the account name doesn't even appear on the list. The user folder in Documents & Settings is still there though, with everything in it. There's just no way to log into the user account.

I did some an unsuccessful XP repair a few days ago, maybe it did something. What should I do? Help, please! And thanks!
