    I am using Windows XP on my laptop and now when I try to boot it gives me a blank screen and says "application failed to start, and then something about the userinit.exe".
    Any help appreciated please. :)

    Welcome to TSG sticky1399 !

    Userinit.exe is the logon application for Windows.

    Could you post the -exact- error message complete?
    What version of Windows are you running?
