WIndows wont let me log into acount- Full HDD

Specs: Windows XP
I have an HP510 laptop. it is a very [/contents/systemes/format.php3 old] model, about 5 or 6 years old. It only has a 50 Gig hard drive and got full really fast. ive been using it for the past three years with under 100 Mb of space on it and its been working fine. i recently put some stuff on it and it then had only 8 [/contents/base/binaire.php3 Kb] of free space on the drive left. i shut the computer down and the next time i [/telecharger/telecharger-2804-started started] it up and tried to log into my naccount an error message came up saying there is too little space on drive C to start up. [/contents/win/winintro.php3 Windows] then logged me into a temporarey account. unfortuynately the temporary account wont let me access any of my files and also wont let me access most of the options in control panel. i used disk clean up to free up some space and managed to get 3.8 Gigs, i then ticked the " compress drive to save space" box on the properties window of the drive. i now have over 5 gigs of free space on the drive. However, windows keeps logging me back into the temporary account each time i try and log in. ive shut down my computer and restarted it many times and tried to log in but nothing works. When i try and log in with my usual account it doesnt even give me any messages or anything, it just logs me straight into the temporary account.

I dont want to format the drive as i have valuable information on the drive. i also dont have the [/contents/systemes/sysintro.php3 operating system] disks. If anyone has had this happen to them before or knows how to solve this problem please leave a comment here or email me on

"I dont want to format the drive as i have valuable information on the drive"

First step, Slave your HD to another HD/comp ( no need to bolt it in, just cable it & leave it outside the case ) You may have a choice of jumper settings on the master HD, such as master with slave or ms. Copy your stuff ( don't forget your emails & address book ) onto the host HD or other media.
