I have a windows xp embeddded system which I added a user to. Originally the system automatically booted up and logged in (presumably as the Administrator).

Anyway I niaively deleted the user account thinking it would resort back to the original auto boot.

WRONG!

When I boot the machine now, it has the deleted Username and does not allow any entry on the keyboard and is effectively locked.

My backup image is also corrupted!

How do I recover from this to allow to system to autoboot as it did previously?


Kind Regards
David

Try doing a repair install and choose the option to restore to an earlier time.
