Have a XP Home edt pc.  Cannot login even in safe mode.  When I select a user it starts to login then says saving settings and I'm back at (still at) the screen with the accounts to select (Administrator,  Owner).

Doesn't matter what account I select its starts the login then says saving settings and its like I'm loggin back out.  Never get to a desktop screen.

Thanks

Hi... Still I could not log in normal to Windows XP or through Safe Mode. I tried every possible solution of editing the registry & deleting the RUN list, unfortunately nothing helped.
