Try booting into regular safe mode, and select the account Administrator if it appears -- this account should only appear in safe mode. If you can get in there I would suggest you try doing a System Restore to an earlier date from Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore. Let me know.

put your winxp cd in cd drive and reboot your system
when prompted to push any key to boot to cdrom then click a key
Click R to enter recovery console
type the following
expand d:\i386\userinit.ex_ c:\windows\system32
once it says
1 file copied
then type exit
and click enter
system will reboot
make sure to remove winxp pro cd before it boots up
let it boot fully
Windows should start normally
If not post with result
