Ok call me crazy but this is what's happened.
I recently installed a fresh windows XP with SP3. 2 days ago
After downloading some torrents, i got some trojan/virus activity and the antivirus system started to remove them. I am running Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2009. Did a full scan and it cleaned all the computer or so i thought.
It then crashed.

Upon reboot it now asks for login & password.
I've never had a password or installed in with one also it was never setup to request password.

Now i can't get in, either in safemode or normal.
I've even tried some of the windows password hacking, but that's not working

Anyone have any solution without reinstalling?
