Hi all, Earlier today I tried to install sp2 for windows xp home,but for some reason(probably me) it was interupted and then a message came up saying that my system was unstable and to remove the sp2. This I did,but when I rebooted my account came up as password protected,I tried all my paswords but none work,so I can't log on.I managed to log on using f8/use last known good settings but it takes an age,I checked the password status on my account and it is off,but when I rebooted it came up password protected.aagh! I managed to log on after it didn't recognise my name and logged me on as default user,I can't turn it off though cos it'll go back to password protected. Explorer keeps crashing and there are files missing from media player and the recovery programme so they don't work either,my laptop seems to be curling up and dying in front of me. Is there anywhere I can re install missing windows files or have a scan to see the state of my windows. Any help is much appreciated. Cheers,Neil.
