Please help me out. after changing the regional settings from Arabic to English in Windows XP. I am not able to login to the computer as it accepts only the English. I didn't add the Arabic keyboard to the regional language settings. Is there any way to get through this. Its very urgent.

Can you jump in to safe mode? Either to reset the user password, add the required keyboard or maybe perform a system restore. – DMA57361 Jan 18 '11 at 9:21

Download this ISO file, burn it to CD as an Image (not data) Boot from it and reset the password to a blank one.
