Hi folks,I'm really in need of help.I accidently deleted an account on my computer and I can't get back in.There was an account called "everyone" (which was there when I bought my computer)and the administrator account.As I am the only user and have administrator rights I thought I wouldn't need the "everyone" account but when I reeboot it boots as normal but when it gets to the windows xp screen there is no logon box to log in to.I've tried safe mode,safe mode with command prompt,I've tried ctrl-alt-del x2,nothing can get me into my computer.I don't have a windows xp pro disc however I can access the recovery console via a friends xp home cd.Can anyone PLEASE help me to get my computer and my files back,it'd be much appreciated.Thankyou.

Need to do a Windows repair. You'll need to either beg or borrow an XP Pro CD from a friend before you can do this.

Don't take this the wrong way but the recovery console will not help you here.
Can I just ask, how come you don't have an XP CD? It should have come with the computer.

Neil,Iwhen I bought my computer xp pro was already installed on it and there was no disc.It's a genuine version of windows bought from a store.I've been told that you can access system restore via the recovery console but I don't know how to do it.Any help would be much appreciated.Thanks.
