If your locked of your user account, and can't access Windows, the only option we have now is to boot from disk.
Do you have your XP CD?

yup, but I'm going to have to install the hard drive as a slave somewhere, to back up files.

How could the password issue have happened? It was a simple update from msoft... could there still be threads of the virus somewhere, that is causing that to happen?

Hello.
Dunno, never heard of a virus locking you out of Windows, there's just no reward of that.
Once you backup your files, we can try and remove the password by booting from disk.
