    If you dont know the XP password, it means that either
    A. You got a brand name system.
    B. You forgot.

    i agree with you kane2g
    and MS has not done anything with your system bongoloid so it is not inconvenient by them.
    anyways, did you try "last known good configuration"?
    you said you can get into "safe mode" then did you try "system filechecker"?
