Hello, I have been trying to acces my computer but as soon as I log in, it logs me off automatically, I have tried everything already. Trying to log in into safe mode wont work, it will still turn off, I have tried to access to the system recovery options but it won't let me access to them. I have an hp touchscreen laptop with windows vista. Please help me!!
I met the same problem in WinXP Pro. Througout I made a lot of mistakes and error which I have to re-clone back and start again; I "may have the answer" as I solved in XP Pro. 1) Backup your HD onto another HD using Clone software by todobackup by Easeus. This is as a precaution act to protect in case you make mistake.
2) Try to get the same model with the same configuration as your Notebook or PC ( Ms office and etc) . Link them together in a network I ONLY TRIED IT IN THE DOMAIN Environment. It's best if the Administrator password are the same and software applications installed are the same.
Make sure you are able to ping or logon Remotely to the "bad" pC using Administrator from "good" PC. NOTE : It will not work if don't have accessor network connectivity.
3) On the "good" PC, using Regedit export HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Winlogon by clicking right hand and select Export. You may save on the My documents or Desktop. Name a proper file name you can remember say, "goodpcwinlogon.reg
4) Select File from Pull down menu, Select Connect Network Registry. Select the "bad" PC and connect it. It might prompt Administrator password here.
5) Export the HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Winlogon and name it differently say, "badpcwinlogon.reg" onto the "good" PC.
This is as a precaution act to protect in case a mistake is made.
6) Using Regedit, click Import registry and select the "goodpcwinlogon.reg" SELECT THE CORRECT PC to IMPORT, in this case the "bad" PC.
7) After importing, you may restart and try logon using Administrator in the "Bad" PC. It should work.
8) In the "Bad" PC, Go under C:\Documents and Settings, Here look for your username say, "ABC".
Rename the folder ABC to ABC_OLD.
9) Logoff as Administrator, and re-login as the Domain username in the "Bad" PC in this case "ABC". Logoff as ABC
10) Logon as Administrator again in the "Bad" PC. Go to C:\Documents and Settings, you should see a new user "ABC" created. Copy the Favourites, My Documents and Desktop files from the ABC_OLD folder.
11) re-login as your username in this case, "ABC". It should be working now.
I cannot guarantee it will work completely as I got about 90% of the software application working. I have to re-install some here.
Hi am Hance from Tanzania, The easiest solution to the above is;
1) Run a live CD of hirens in a affected Pc
2) copy this file USERINIT.EXE FROM THIS PATH(C:/windows/system32) from a normally/properly booting PC
3) paste it in the affected PC.IN THIS PATH(C:/windows/system32)
4) Restart the computer and you will be GOOD TO GO
what I did to specifically fix this problem (taking the above guys advice):
the problem: windows kept logging me off directly after I logged in without the chance to do anything. going into safe mode only gave me a blue screen of death.
the fix: I used a program called ERD commander 2005. it allows you to boot to the disk and gives you access to your PCs vital parts. It allows you to run regedit. I followed the path in the registrey: HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon and changed the value for userinit from "...winlogon32.exe" to "...userinit.exe,"
I have copied the userinit to winlogon32 which is the same name that I saw it calling in the registry.... it logged on for a few extra seconds, I see the Malwares background and then logged me right back off. There are additional steps that need to be taken here, this is a new hybrid issue that makes the COPY userinit to the name callediin the registry, or even changing the registry value back to userinit useless. It works once and then before you can get into windows the malware reasserts its self and you are back where you started. ANY TIPS???
i used a cd, called hirens and in xp mode did a remote registry edit of the same key harry above stated, making the same change, INCLUDING the comma.
i also verified this with another xp (my beater laptop) and its registry entries.
worked like a charm. I am of the belief that another "fix" program remapped the key to the bad entry. the machine I am working on has 3 spy bots installed (none current), the aol security center (horrible), spy doctor, severely outdated java, and a few other 1/2 installs.
and a bunch of virii...
now for virii cleanup on the users machine...
THANK YOU FOR THE SPECIFIC LINK HARRY! THAT WAS CRUCIAL!!
You should try to use a boot up disc and carry out a non destructive recovery.
This will keep your old files and you can then boot up from the newly installed OS system which is
on the new section of the disc, effectively partitioning your HDD.
Hope this works. It did for me.
(there are a number of firms which offer boot up discs for all systems .These may also work, but try your boot disc if you can find it. Once again. Good luck. )
how did you find the solution to your problem because I am having the same problem as you.Well it bugging me alot but I already have the anti-virus thing.It say's that I need the spyware removal but i'm so confused why?...
this happened to me as well. Tried safe mode too, but nothing helps. I then tried re-installing my xp, but it doesn't seem to read it. So, I can't re-install windows, or do anything! As I turn my pc on, it shows that Last good configuration/start windows automatically screen, but I try everything for it to boot from my xp disc, nothing seems to help. Any help on this...anyone??!!
