Thanks.

But I think you have misunderstood.

This is when I shall log in to "Windows" 2000 at the beginning of the process
(after I have turned onthe computer). Thats where my problem is

Hi Beddy,
If no one turns up an easy solution, you may want to read the following Website.
I have never used Windows 2000, but it looks as if one of the options may do the trick if you want to save those pictures.
The Offline NT Password & Registry Editor (v050303) looks promising.
Screwing around with the Registry is always hairy, so procede with caution.

You may be able to initialize a PARTIAL (or whatever it is called by your computer maker) reinstall if you have your manufacturer's CD. I'm pretty sure that could be done and it would not reformat your drive, thereby saving all your data.


I wish you luck!
