Question about Computers & Internet
I assume you cannot log into your user account in Windows.
This is how to create a new user account to log in and to move your user files from the old account to the new one.
Start the computer and keep pressing F8 until startup menu appears. Use arrow keys to select "safe mode".
When windows appears, log on as Administrator.
Use Control Panel, Users and create a new user. Select Computer administrator type. Restart the computer and log on to the new user account. Then you will have to move all your data files:
Open Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Documents and settings\[your old user account]
Select folders Desktop, Favorites and My Documents (this may appear as [User]'s documents) and copy or cut them. Go to c:\Documents and settings\[your new user account] and paste them here.
You will lose only the desktop picture and some windows settings.
After that you may delete the old user account from Control panel/Users
