I cant log in

there is a virus in your system which corrupts a registry of the files userinit.exe and explorer.exe.
Its better to format or to repair:
So the problems is After you clean the viruses you won't be able to log on to your windows desktop. I think here is the best ways to fix it:
Step 1: Create a BartPe Bootable CD
" BartPE" (Bart Preinstalled Environment) is the bootable Windows CD-Rom or DVD from the original Windows XP that we can say Live CD that, very suitable for PC maintenance tasks.
To built it by ur selves please go to : to download the PeBuilder latest version and read the instruction to built your own bootable CD.
Step 2: Verifying and fixing the Userinit.ext
1. Insert the BartPE CD into the drive, and boot the system from the CD. Once the file loading phase is over, the Bart PE desktop will be visible.
2. Type Regedit.exe in the prompt, and press Enter. Select the HKEY_USERS hive
3. From the File menu, choose the Load Hive option. Browse to your Windows installation drive C:\Windows\System32\Config\
4. Select the file named SOFTWARE (the file without any extensions), and click Open
5. Type a name for the hive that you've loaded now. (Example: MYHOUSE)
6. Now the SOFTWARE hive is loaded, and present under the HKEY_USERS base hive.
7. In order to fix the Userinit value in the loaded hive, navigate to the following location:
HKEY_USERS \ MYHOUSE\ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon
8. Double-click Userinit and set it's value correctly. Example: Set it's data as follows:

C0000218 Registry file failure. Registry cannot

The hive file is the problem, it is low on honey. Put it back to where the bees can produce enough honey for your PC to recognize it. Compaq's are notorious for their love of honey, that is why it is showing it is missing. DO NOT simply put honey on a CD and insert. Will not work.

ACER 5720 (XP sp3) not shutting down

Hello Satishrk.

There are several potential causes of this. However, based on your description, it's most likely user hive registry hang. It's a fairly common problem. It occurs when certain application(s) won't readily let go of the user's portion of the Windows registry. If this is the case, you will see entries in your Windows (Application) Event Log [Start > Run… > type "eventvwr.msc" (without quotes), then "OK"]. Its entries will have a "Source" of "Userenv", and an "Event" ID of "1517" and/or "1524".


Fortunately, there’s a very easy fix. It’s a handy little tool called "User Profile Hive Cleanup Service", and is published by Microsoft. Once installed, it will monitor for all such events and safely release the registry logjam. It's a tool EVERY (repeat EVERY) Windows_NT operating system (i.e., 2000/XP/2003) should have installed.


Please post back with a status report and/or with any further questions.

"Today's the best day of my life...and NOW you're part of it!"
