Can't log into Windows XP Home

By demagedon ·
Hi, my comp was afflicted by viruses, which Norton Internet Security 2008 could not catch. I used MalwareBytes to remove 72 infected files and had to reboot. After the reboot, I was no longer able to login as I was logged off everytime (with the following text showing "logging off, saving your last settings") when I clicked on the user icon or any other icon including the Administrator.

I tried booting in Safe Mode, Last Known Good Configuration and also using the other options available, but still could not login.

I did not have a Windows XP boot disk and had to create one from another pc with XP Home. Now I am in the Recovery Console and the at the Windows prompt (C:\WINDOWS&gt. However, I am not sure what files (and the commands to use) to repair in order to be able to login into Windows again.

Please help..

Also, would this process delete my personal files in the hardrive? I am under the impression that by using Recovery Console my data will remain intact. Please let me know if that is not the case?
