Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
When i turn my laptop on it hangsup at loading your personal settings
There could be two possible reasons for the same
1. There is a windows update that is installing in the background
2. The user profile has got corrupted
To check what the problem is , restart the computer and before the windows screen appears , tap on the F8 key multiple times and select safe mode and hit enter. Select the user name and see if the system goes into windows . If yes , try system restore. If no, the windows OS may need to be repaired .
Thanks for using Fixya

try booting to the SAFE MODE (F8 at boot) and see if you can log in to the ADMIN account from the safe mode. If you can, then create a new user profile, then reboot to normal mode and try booting to the NEW profile. If that works, then the old profile is likely corrupt

you can try to boot up in safe mode, F8 when you turn it on (try to save your personal files to USB Drive)
Most likely, you will have to reload/restore your Operating system...

Sounds like a malware issue I've seen before:
XP logs user off immediately when the user tries to log in - can't get to any desktop
Allegedly 3rd party advertising software Blazefind (homepage and searchbar highjacker)
Boot to the Windows XP CD (RAID systems will need the RAID driver floppy during the bootup - hit the F6 key when directed in the bottom message).
Enter the Recovery Console by choosing 'R' at the Welcome to Setup screen.
Choose the OS shown (1) and hit enter.
Hit enter for a blank password if asked for one. If this isn't accepted, make sure that the user is using the correct XP CD (using a PRO version CD for a HOME version install or visa versa will result in a password rejection. If the user has upgraded to PRO over a HOME edition, try booting the HOME CD). If the CD is correct, and the user can't produce the correct Administrator password, then a clean reinstall of the OS (with full data loss) becomes the final answer.
Assuming the user now sees a command prompt, type "CD %systemroot%\system32" (without quotes) and hit ENTER. Normally the %systemroot% default is "c:\windows\" but this depends on if the system defaults were kept or changed during OS installation, of course.
Type "COPY USERINIT.EXE WSAUPDATER.EXE" (again, without quotes) and hit ENTER. This makes a copy of "userinit.exe" and simultaneously names the new copy "wsaupdater.exe".
Type "EXIT" and ENTER. Remove the XP CD while the system is restarting.
The user should now be able to log in normally... but there is one more thing that needs to be done or the issue will repeat itself when the user runs his anti-spyware program again.
Once logged into an administrator account, click the START button.
Choose RUN from the Start Menu.
Enter "REGEDT32" in the OPEN window (notice there is no "i" in edit) and click OK.
By clicking on the + signs next to each branch, click through the tree in the left pane until you get to
Click on the WINLOGON folder in the left pane tree, so that it is highlighted.
Look for "UserInit" in the right pane. It should have a value of "C:\WINDOWS\system32\wsaupdater.exe," (yes, there is a comma at the end of the value). Double-click on "UserInit" and carefully change its value to "C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,". Click OK.
Close the Registry Editor. Reboot. Fix is complete. Anti-spyware programs will probably identify and remove "wsaupdater.exe" but the system is no longer using it.
