    i start my computer up and it goes to the login screen. the way i have my computer set up is i doesnt need a password. well i goes to the log in screen and when i click the user ( the only 1 ) it shows the background for a second and says the user is logging off, then goes right back to the user select screen. what happened a few mins b4 this was my sister hit a few keys on the keyboard and restarted the computer. i believe she is the "User" button on the keyboard. any clues to what i can do.

    What i have already done.
    1 tried logging into safe mode. ( does the samething )
    returning windows to last know good config.

    thats about it. pleasse reply with an answer asap!

    please reread my original post.

    it does that even when i try to log into safe mode.

    those are good ideas but i cant log on at all. please if you can speed up this process at all please do so. i really need to get my computer up and running

    Many threads yesterday/today relating to this problem-
    have a look at post 3 and 4 in this link...A trip to the bootdisk.com for a bootdisk may be in order. I wonder if a moderator here can say if this is the best shot... all my searching here has only found this as a solution to the looping log-in problem.

    i dont know if it will work or if it will change anything on my system. exactly what does a boot disk do? i saw here:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...FamilyID=55820EDB-5039-4955-BCB7-4FED408EA73F

    it says:
    The Windows XP startup disk allows computers without a bootable CD-ROM to perform a new installation of the operating system. The Windows XP startup disk will automatically load the correct drivers to gain access to the CD-ROM drive and start a new installation of Setup.

    does that mean i have to reinstall windows?
    i know this is a dumb question, but i dont know. from that it looks like i have to reinstall the os and i dont wanna do that.

    grr i hate this. thats why i wanna become a computer engineer so i can fix problems like this

    man im starting to think this is a virus. one that starts b4 everything and logs you out of windows. am i correct? and how can i stop it? i have a ? firedragon63 do you have norton anti virus? i dont think it has anything to do with it, but i am just comparing comps here. it sounds like it could be a virus, and is it possible to boot from the norton cd and scan the hard drive w/o logging in? like scan C:/ for viruses?

    i have norton and the funny thing is that the problem started happening right after i finished a scan. i dont think theres a way to scan for viruses without logging on
