Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks for the fast reply, but the problem is that I cannot go that far, after booting I get the screen which has all the users and when I click on any of the user to log in it asks me for the password which is blank and then I get the error mentioned in my first post.
Doing a System Restore might solve this.
Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.

I already tried it but it asks for the Administrator password and gives the same error message if password is left blank.
Turn your computer on, and press F8 repeatedly to access the Windows boot menu.
Choose Safe Mode
Press Enter (you might need to press enter twice)
You'll see the screen fill with lots of lines of text, with filenames at the end. This is normal
When you get to the Welcome screen, choose the account called Administrator. It probably won't have a password set. If it does, you'll need to contact the person who setup your PC.
Once logged in as Administrator, try to do a System Restore as outlined above.
Hope that's helpful,

You might try running chkdsk /r (exactly as written) from the Recovery Console of the CD, since you can get there.
File corruption may have taken place during the shutdown and this is one step in defeating such.

Well...before you try a clean install (which, IMO, is the last option)...why not try a repair install of XP?

All system files would be replaced (including any critical updates since the creation date of the XP CD used), but all data files, programs, and drivers would remain intact.
