    I have been running xp home edition on a new computer for about a month. All of a sudden, I cannot log on to any of the three accounts I have on the computer. When I try to log on, it starts logging on normally, ("logging on...") then the desktop wallpaper flashes for half a second, and it starts to log off as if i had told it to ("logging off", "saving your settings") and goes back to the welcome screen. This has happened about ten times now.

    When i start up in safe mode, I can log into any of the accounts fine. I have no passwords on any of the accounts - the option is create a password, not change or delete.

    While in safe mode, i created a new account. I could not log into that either when i started the computer normally, but could log into it in safe mode.

    What is going on? Please help! How do I fix it?!?

    Thank You

    I read some of the article - i'm not sure exactly what's going on

    however, i started up in safe mode with networking and the same problem occurred - the one that went away in normal safe mode

    i have a cable router that i use to share cable internet with the computer i am typing on right now, but i've had it for a couple of weeks now with no problems. i tried disconnecting from it and starting up normally - still same problem

    Thank you for continued help

    This seems to be connected with networking, I'd suggest removing all the components in networking and rebooting. This should reinstall them, and perhaps you'll sort out the login issues that way.
