Is this Windows XP? You can try booting to the "Last known good configuration.."

Tap the F8 key as you start your sytsem. A new menu should appear with several choices. Select the option that reads "Last known good configuration"

Dear All

I found a solution for that.
Just login as Administrator from another system goto regedit -- file --- Connect Network Registry here type the remote system name you will get Registry editor of the remote system then reach HKLM \ Software \ Microsoft \ windows NT \ Current Version \ Winlogon \ add STRING VALUE and modify data as C:\windows\sytem32\userinit.exe

then u can able to login to the remote system
