This issue occurs because no more events can be logged to the Security log on the computer. When events cannot be written to the Security log, only accounts that are members of the Administrators group can log on to the computer.
To resolve this issue, use an account that is a member of the Administrators group to log on to the computer. Then, follow these steps to specify that Security log events can be overwritten:
1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Event Viewer.
2. Right-click Security, and then click Properties.
3. In the Log Size area of the Security Properties window, click the Overwrite events as needed option under When maximum log size is reached.
4. Click OK.
5. Close Event Viewer.
That will fix it.

On the Welcome screen, press CTRL+ALT+DEL on your keyboard by holding down both the CTRL and ALT keys and then pressing DELETE.
The Log On to Windows dialog box appears. In the User name box, type Administrator. In the Password box, type your Administrator password, if you created one during Windows XP setup. If you have not assigned a password, or you do not know your password, leave the Password box blank. Click OK.

In Windows XP Home Edition, you can login as built-in Administrator in Safe Mode only. For XP Professional, press CTRL + ALT + DEL TWICE at the Welcome Screen and input your Administrator password in the classic logon window that appears.

1. I boot the computer up in safe mode.
2. I get the login screen.
3. I enter the local Administrator login.
4. I select Ok and it begins to log into Windows.
5. After about 2 seconds and before I see the desktop or anything the screen changes from saying loading settings to logging off.
6. It then returns to the Ctrl + Alt + Del screen.

At the Welcome screen, press Ctrl+Alt+Del. Without releasing the Ctrl+Alt keys, release the Del key and tap it again.

No, im not "pulling your chain"
Their the methods used for removing or overwriting the logs.
Could you please tell me what version of windows you are trying to fix?

#1 ...you've already been warned about the images in your signature....remove them soon or i'll remove them for you
#2...you're wrong and obviously not paying attention.... there is NO difference between pressing ctrl - alt -del once or twice when logging on...the ONLY reason you have to press it TWICE is if you've got fast user switching enabled where you get to the XP login screen where all you have to do is click the user icon to log on...and the ONLY thing that pressing the key combo twice does is bring up the classic logon screen...it doesn't effect the logon credentials in any way shape or form...in the OP's case...he's got classic logon turned on...which means his logon box is always up when the computer comes on...which means he doesn't have to press ctrl - alt - del twice to get the screen to come up
