Won't boot into Win Xp, get no errors

By sherlene ·
I have several posts on several site and forums because I am having a problem. Would you mind seeing if you can help me?


"I just built my machine. Installed Win XP Pro, added some stuff, got a brain fart and deleted the asp.net user under the user profiles in control panel. Now pc doesn't boot into win. I don't want to reinstall as I'm afraid I'll loose stuff."

"Ok, I just built this machine, see, and I didn't create boot disk. I did put Norton "go back", a lot of good that did. It won't go back! Anyhoo, my trouble started when I got a brain fart and deleted the asp.net profile through control panel users. I'm not a developer, is that why it won't boot now? Why can't I get rid of that profile without complication? I know there's got to be a work around for this.

I can't even boot into safemode. If there is something else I should be trying, plz give me a clue!

I'm not a total newbie, but I'll admit to holes in my "self-taught" education.

If I reinstall I'll loose somethings I really want to keep.

Please have pity on this dorkburger!"

I just wanted to by-pass the having to select a profile to use at start up. Is crying allowed?

I'm at my wits end. I downloaded a boot disk but it's not working either.
