I accidentally ran an autoinstall for Visio2000 which wanted to reboot my system.  When the system reboot ran, some sort of automated logon script started running to automatically log on an unknown user named VISIO.  Once I touch any key on the keyboard, nothing works anymore. everything frezes.  Even waiting 20 minutes does not help.  I suspect there is some sort fo logon script I should be able to disable from the command prompt on the Windows Re-installtion CD but I do not know for sure.  Booting in Safe mode does not help.  Still wants to logon first.

This machine runs my data forensics software.  I had not run the backup yet today. I know, shoot me.  I cannot afford to reload and lose it all.  Some critical files were moved onto this machine today.  It's the only copy I have.  HELP
