I have lost my windows XP password, and moreover my computer does not starts in safe mode might be due to virus, is there a way to get out of the situation without formatting the system

It displays the screen having choice to boot in safe mode, or safe mode with command prompt/ networking, to boot normally etc. when I select safe mode or safe mode with networking or safe mode with command prompt, system restarts and again come to to normal login screen asking for admin password
