Ghosting the drive will not solve the problem because you already deleted files, if the ghost program has worked correctly try to perform a system restore by going into safe mode

How can i log in my Delloptiplex 760 computer,when its auto logging off


If running XP

A log-on loop on your Windows XP computer is a difficult situation where the computer never completes its boot cycle, restarting intermittently ad nauseam.


This issue indicates a major problem with the boot functionality of your XP system.

Restore the computer to working order by utilizing the repair and restoration utility on your XP system disk.

Insert the XP disk into the computer.


Restart the computer.

Press any key when prompted to boot from the disk.

Press "Enter" at the first screen and "F8" at the license terms.


Highlight the drive containing XP and press "R," repairing the operating system boot files and removing the log-on loop.

or

Windows XP sometimes has a glitch when you are logging in to your user account in order to boot the operating system.

The glitch logs you in and then logs you off the account.


This problem is usually caused by one of the programs that load during the computer's start-up.

Fixing this issue is a matter of ensuring that whatever program is causing the problem doesn't start up as soon as you start your computer.

or


Power on the computer and allow it to get to the user logon page normally.

There is no need to start up the computer in "safe mode."


Click the user who is having the issue and type in the user's password if one is set up.

Press and hold the "shift" button on your computer keyboard as soon as you see the tool bar load up at the bottom of the screen but before any other program has a chance to do so.


This stops any "Startup" program from running and logging you off.


Right-click the "Start" button on the bottom left of your screen.


Select "Explore" from the menu that appears.


Double-click "Programs" from the list on the left side of the window that pops up.


Double-click "Startup."


Select all the files inside the "Startup" folder by dragging a box over them.


Right-click anywhere on the selected files.


Select "Delete" to delete those files.


Note that deleting the programs from the "Startup" folder does not delete them from your computer.


All this does is make it so that these programs no longer start as your computer is starting so that any error in the running of the programs doesn't interfere with logging in to your account.


Hope this helps

Can not delete it is used by another program close any program that might be using the file an try again


Reboot the computer and as soon as you get back into windows try deleting the file again. If you get the same message then go into MSCONFIG (type it in the search box) into the startup tab. Disable all the programs and reboot the computer. Try deleting the file again. If you still can't delete it then it may be a system file your trying to delete and those I wouldn't mess with because it could screw up windows.
Last thing to try would be to boot up your computer in safe mode. Since it doesn't load much into memory you should be able to delete your file that way for sure.

My pc was very slowly running


Your machine is old, there's not much you can do. Remove any programs you don't use, stop programs from starting-up with the OS, and increase your RAM: http://www.crucial.com/index.aspx

My cdram disk doesnt work properly?


If you're using Windows,

Try using SYSTEM RESTORE to go back to a date where you were able to use your computer normally.
- Just click START
- Type SYSTEM RESTORE on SEARCH PROGRAMS AND FILES Bar
- Hit ENTER and then just follow the steps.

You can also try deleting the upper and lower filters for the CD ROM. It's like resetting it.
Warning: Before using this fix you should backup the registry. This can be done by selecting File --> Export from within the registry editor

1. Go to START --> RUN --> Type REGEDIT and hit ENTER
2. Navigate to the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
3. In the right pane look for these 2 values - UpperFilter and LowerFilter.
4. Delete the UpperFilter key by right clicking on it and choosing Delete and OK.
5. Repeat step 4 for the LowerFilter key.
6. Exit the registry editor and restart the computer.

If this doesn't work, contact your manufacturer to have them check the unit for you especially if it's still in warranty. This may be a hardware issue and will be needing replacement.

Hope this helps.
