Hello,
i have windows xp home, with service pack 2. (IE6). today i find i can't logon because a message appears saying "windows cannot log you on because your profile cannot be loaded" ....etc. this is the only account on this computer, & it is no longer on the welcome screen. i have tried f8 -- safe mode, but none of the utilities work for some reason. i tried recovery console & it stops setup because it says the file Txtsetup.sif is corrupt or missing, status 14. i tried ALT+TAB & it doesn't work. i don't have a windows xp CD, or i would have tried that. :thumbsup: does anyone know of some kind of bootfloppy on the internet, that can be used to boot past the welcome screen to the start menu ? any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Thank-You
diyahnih

I assume you logged in to safe mode with Administrator, which is easy
as when you see the logon screen in safemode press ctrl+Alt+Del key together and you can enter administrator username and password and enter into windows.

then go to control panel->user accounts
Here create a new user and restart the machine, try loggin in with that user.
If everythign works fine, then copy you My documents files from your old profile to new profile after loggin in a administrator.

If you have never created a password for the default hidden administrator account, try just entering administrator in the login box without a password following the directions in the post above, or even better, try using a Windows System Restore date from before the problem began.
