My Computer won't let me log on even in safe mode

Microsoft Windows xp home edition sp2b

Specs: Windows XP
Every time I try to log onto my computer now I get this message "group policy client logon failed access denied" it won't let me log on. Then I tried to log on in safe mode and it looks like it about to let me in and then it keeps logging me off. Doesn't work. How can I get my files off the hard drive if I can't log on?

Did you recently make any changes to the computer? Have you tried logging in with the built-in Admin account, or are you using that as your regular login? Group Policies are normally set at at Domain Level. Is this a work computer or personal computer?

This is a personal computer that was set up with one login no others. The computer has been crashing for a while, it would go to blue screen then I would reboot. This past week I went to log on and the computer seemed to have been reconfigured the icons have been moved to the side and the desktop screen pictures were different. It was as if someone else had come and re-installed windows. But I still had access to the files and the computer at that point. So I thought it was ok. And I mean to move my files. But then the other day it kicked me out and gave me a windows shut down incorrectly error and gave me the option of

Starting in

"safe mode"
"safe mode networking"
"safe mode configuration"

Start windows normally

I hit start windows normally like I always do and it goes to the login screen and i click to login and it get that error message.

Then I tried to log in in "safe mode" and it seemed to be working (logging in) it flashed safe mode in the four corners of the screen but then it bounces me out and says logging off and takes me the login icon.

I can't get in in safe mode.

You have posted in the old Windows NT forum but your spec says Windows XP.
Which is it?

One way to get your stuff off is to create a Live Linux CD on another computer. You can then boot to that which will give access to the hard disk. Linux just runs from the CD and RAM. It doesn't install anything and you will go back to the previous Windows situation when you boot without it. Let me know if you want to go this way and I'll give you the details.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
