When I log in it immediately logs me back out - I know there's a way to get it back, it might be by reinstalling XP, but I can't remember...anyone know?


I found this on a CNET forum, let's see if this helps you:

THE REAL WAY TO FIX THIS PROBLEM IS TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

1. Insert the original Windows XP CD (Windows XP with Service Pack 2 is preferred, but not required) and reboot the computer. You may need to configure your computer to boot from the CD-ROM drive.
2. When the Windows XP Setup has started, press "R" to "repair the Windows XP installation using Recovery Console".
3. Select the Windows installation to repair (generally this is C:\Windows) by typing its number and then pressing ENTER.
4. Type the Administrator password and press ENTER.
5. Type the following commands:

D: [ENTER]
CD I386 [ENTER]
EXPAND USERINIT.EX_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 [ENTER]

NOTE: If your CD-ROM drive has a different letter assigned to it, enter "X:" instead, where X is the appropriate drive letter.

After entering "EXPAND USERINIT.EX_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32" you should see the text "1 file(s) copied", in which case all went well.

Remove the Windows XP CD, type "EXIT" and press ENTER to restart your computer. You should now be able to log on as normally.

wow, that's...that's a little confusing - I was thinking I'd just upgrade to vista now like I've been wanting to do now that I have to reload the OS partly anyhow.

:-b - well fixing OS issues is never easy and straightforward. All you're really doing is a repair of the OS, but if you were thinking of loading Vista (not sure why, but....) then you might try that. Do whatever is going to be easier for you....

Good thing Madison wasn't there with his sawed-off. We all know what he would have done had he seen you stealing.
