uh oh, i've heard tons of problems with people going from SP1 to SP2. I need a little more info about what you see at the windows screen, how many accounts you have etc.

welp the only way i know of that would fix it is to reformat your hard drive and reinstall windows and upgrade to SP2. Just use the system disks that came with your computer.

Default Re: Cannot login into windows

just want to ask, you got XP with this machine when you got the PC from the shop? its not a burnt copy?? i have had people use programs like reset5 to wipe the Registration of windows XP, now that wipe the Registration but when they download SP2 it goes crazy and wont let them log back into there machine.. But what you have is a bad install of SP2, it happened to myself, well i made it bad becuase i turned it off while it was half way into install SP2. IF you cannot get into safe mode, try doing a repair install and hope you have not lost all your data.
