    It became corrupt how? A description of the symptoms would be helpful. There are some brilliant people here, but none of them are psychic , as far as I know.

    although I think this
    http://support.microsoft.com/default...&Product=winxp
    and this
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=811151
    may help

    best thing to do is log in as admin - being as you are on home ed - boot up in safe mode, logon into the default admin account- won't be password protected unless you have been wise enough to do this, create a new user profile and then go about copying the files into the new user profile as indicated in the above. Once sure you have everything you can delete the corrupt account

    should do the trick

    LOL - bear in mind the source of the info... don't blame me if MS are wrong - after all it was their product that caused this

    (seriously - it should work I've had to do something similar to the above in the past)
