I corrupted my default partition, after I had made a 2nd partition while trying to do a dual-boot. I then installed WinXP on the 2nd empty partition and now I'm able to view all my files except those which are locked by my user. I need to fix my AUTOEXEC file so I can boot into it.

Since you are using Windows XP, you can try to restart your computer with DOS prompt and use the fdisk /mbr command:
You can use that to rewrite the master boot record and change which partitions you can boot into without writing over the data on your partitions.
