    Glad to see a mention of this problem as one of our home computer has got it from yesterday. Funny as someone looged off as the system was working fine and 10 min. later another tried to log on and couldn't.
    I checked the registry as suggested below but there is no key called "OldUserinit".
    In case the "userinit.exe" file is corrupted, is it possible to download it from the net and write it over the existing one in system32?

    If there is no OldUserinit, you don't have to delete it. :)

    If you believe your userinit.exe is corrupt, have you tried running SFC /Scannow

    Tried sfc /scannow but does not run. This is the message it gave me (be aware that I have to boot the system in safe mode in order to be able to log in).

    Windows File Protection could not initiate a scan of protected system files.
    The specific error code is 0x000006ba [The RPC server is unavailable].

    Did the Windows XP Repair Install to no avail. The problem remains the same and I can only get into the system in Safe mode.

    I'm out of ideas, perhaps you have reached the time to do a fresh installation?
