When I first pressed 'R' to repair it asked which installation I wanted to repair. The next line said something like 1 c:/windows, so I entered the number 1, then the admin p/word thing came up. I take it that entering number 1 is correct?
Safe mode is the ONLY thing it will boot too. Something has been deleted, and I don't know what, that is stopping windows booting into anything other than safe mode. I originally reinstalled xp pro on the computer about 6 months ago and didn't use any passwords.
