Ok so. I turned on my computer yesterday and it booted up normally except when it goes to the login screen, I no longer got the blue screen. I got one of those boxes that they use in networks. This really puzzled me. I can't think of anything that would of provoked this problem. The only thing that has ever happened lately is I updated the day before throught the window automatic update and this happened. I have been reading up on simular problems on this and most say go in and change, or something about two programs fighting for control. My extended problem is when i login, it shows my background, none of my icons or taskbar and logs right back out. I can't seem to know how to fix this. And I really do not want to reformat my computer. I have a Windows XP, but it is a upgrade from a 95 shell, not all of the hardware is up to date.
