Got the error code 0x80004005 on Win XP
Posted on 2005-03-23
I just re-installed my Win XP with a bootleg CD, all is fine when I installed Win XP SP2, bcoz I heard its very useful in fending off spyware/viruses. Now that I installed it, and restarted my pc, the thing gives me an error code of "An error has occured. Therefore Windows cannot verify the rights of this computer. Error Code 0x80004005" whenever I try to login (or click) the user "Administrator" (which had no password). I didnt make a Guest user, so now I cant get in Win XP.
What to do? Do I have to re-install Win XP all over? Or is there a way I can get in there? Or do I need to buy the OS (which I cannot afford)?
Help would be much appreciated, thanks :)
