It sounds like the user profile is corrupted.

How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile in Windows XP

You can use any user that has administrator rights that still works to do that.
If you have only one user when you boot normally, boot the computer in Safe mode and choose the Administrator user - usually that user does not require a password - select it and just press Enter.
(Remove any bootable CD or DVD disks.
Press F8 repeatedly while booting, don't hold down the key, and when the boot choices menu appears choose Safe mode. The screen will fill with lines then stay the same for a short while - eventually you'll see the Logon screen with the users on it - choose the Administrator user. )

Then boot into Safe mode and try the Administrator user.

If that doesn't help,
- you've got major problems, and you will probably need a Windows CD of the same version as is installed on the computer - Home or Pro, and the Product Key.

- Tell us the make and model of your brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system, the make and model of the mboard.

The specific model of a brand name system is shown on a label on the outside of the case somewhere, or it can often be determined by going to the brand name's web site and loading a program they have available, if Windows is still working, on the subject computer.
For Dell computers, they have a Service Tag number - the specific model can be determined by using that on their site, or can often be determined there automatically by you downloading some software, if Windows is still working, on the subject computer. The Service Tag number should be on a label on the outside of the case, probably on the bottom on a laptop, on the back on a desktop, and is often also shown in the bios Setup.

The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots.

See the info at the link in response 1.

You can click on the printer icon at right near the top of that to print it if you like, .
Or - you could select all the text, RIGHT click , choose Copy, then Paste it into a Wordpad document, Save that on your desktop screen.

One of the files they tell you NOT to copy is probably the one is causing the problem.

Was there more than user to logon to when you booted normally before you had this problem ?

Did you logon to the NEW user ?

Are you SURE you followed all the steps correctly ?

If you're not sure, make a different new user and try again.

If that doesn't help, test your hard drive - if you have more than one, the one Windows was installed on .

Check your hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostics.
See the latter part of response 1 in this:

If you don't have a floppy drive, you can get a CD image diagnostic utility from most hard drive manufacturer's web sites, but obviously you would need to make a burned CD, preferably a CD-R for best compatibility, on another computer if you need to.

Seagate's Seatools will test any brand of hard drive.
Do the long test.

If the hard drive itself tests okay, any data problems found can be fixed, one way or another.

You probably need to boot into Safe mode and logon to the Administrator user to copy the files from the old user profile to the new user profile.
