    Hi, my girlfriend has a problem with her Toshiba Satellite laptop. There is a passsword entry login prompt "which actually has no password) but seems to have developed a problem in that upon pressing enter, the computer starts to run through to the desktop however almost immediately a dialogue box comes up which says the computer is logging out and it returns to the password entry box. No matter how many times we try we cannot login and just loops between the login box. It's not a password issue as such because when you enter an incorrect password it tells you so.

    Have had some virus issue recently but managed to get rid of them (antivirus 2009).

    It is possible to run the laptop and have completed a system restore on safe mode but no help.

    Any ideas?
