When you login to any account do you get a error message of any type?

sounds like when you made the new user account you made it a limited user account...
check in the control panel... user accounts

Hey itar2mas, I guess your using XP Pro ? Let us know, if so you can access "Group policies" by running > Start > Run: Type; gpedit.msc and hit Enter.
You should be able to change many policies.
If it's XP Home, and you've actually deleted your User Account, keep trying in Control Panel, user accounts , and Administrative tools see if you can find your Old Profile, or the Admin acct.

You may have to configure your new account, and live with it ?
