Hello, and Thank You for reading this topic! :)
Okay, My computer at the welcome screen says: Windows can not log in or access this user account. This issue may be due because of a corrupt local file. It also says something about the registry on the computer. So the effect of this:

->Not having the ability to log in to my usual account
->All the changes made to the Temporary account are not saved. (Only that change that remained the same was the screen resolution.)
->My usual files or applications that I use like Skype won't open at the beginning.
I would appreciate a answer in the near future, because they are giving me limit of how many Temporary Accounts I can use.
Again I thank You for taking your time and reading this topic! :)
Sincerly,
ThatOne15

Boot from your XP CD
And select to enter the Recovery Console
Pressing "1" for Administrator
Then <Enter> key to continue.

Once in the Recovery Console type in ChkDsk /R and then press the <Enter> key
Allow CheckDisk to finish Checking/Repairing the system, then Restart. Hopefully to Normal Mode :)

Kimsland, RC.ISO is also not sanctioned by microsoft. the instructions below are. to avoid piracy/copyright issues please refrain from using RC.ISO here (and don't come back telling me that it's been posted here before, i know that. we're a dynamic site and we have to adapt to different information as it comes along. it's come to our attention that RC.ISO is not approved for distribution and we're adapting to cover this.)

This will allow you to burn a Recovery Console cd
  • Download the recovery_console_cd.zip from here file to your drive and unzip it to it's own folder.
  • Download the correct floppy disk setup package for your operating system from Microsoft and save it to the folder you extracted the zip to.
  • Rename the floppy disk setup package to Bootdisk.exe
  • Insert a blank cd into your burner.
  • Now just double click the RecoveryCD.bat file and follow the prompts to burn a cd that will allow you to boot to the recovery console.
