Reboot and when you see the maker's logo, hear a beep or it talks about F8, start tapping the F8 key slowly. Keep tapping until the Safe Mode Menu appears and choose Safe Mode with Networking. You should be offered an Administrator login. Select it and just hit Enter to logon.

If that doesn't work then get Hiren's boot Cd and boot off it.
This a BIG! Zip File so save it. Then right click on it and Extract all. Put a blank CD in the drive and then double click on BurnToCD.cmd. When it finishes you boot off it and run the MiniXP program. This will give you a fake XP desktop.
