Hi,
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 .

SOURCE: Stuck on "loading your personal settings..." screen.

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

SOURCE: Computer loads personal settings and then logs off

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)

Fix:

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

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS NT\CURRENTVERSION\WINLOGON

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.

Starting point would be to turn the computer right off including taking out the battery unplug the power supply wait a while and then reconnect power supply and restart holding down the key that allows you to enter the BIOS. Reset the BIOS to default settings and then restart. If this works then reinsert the battery and hopefully this will fix your problem.

Will not load past the "DELL" loading screen when you turn it on..wtf is wrong with it?!


hmm
ok try turning the computer on soon as you see any life at all hit f8.
or it maybe Shift f8 on yours. you may have to try both. but hit f8 you will see the advance menu screen. on advance menu screen select last known good configuration.
allow the computer to boot. if it gets to desk top perform a system restore to before the problem started. if not you will need to shut down again . boot the computer again as soon as you see any life . you will need to enter setup. you can do this by turning on computer soon as you see any life hit f1 or f2 or delete. it will be 1 of those keys that will get you into setup. in setup you will look to the upper left corner you will see where it says load default settings.
click on load defult settings. agree to it by clicking yes or by typing a Y.
now you will want to save your settings and exit the bios. the save and exit will also be there with load default button. click on save and exit.
allow system to boot.
Hope this was helpful.

Windows XP won't load past the 'user account welcome screen'.


If you boot into safe mode* and have same problem, you might be missing a file called "userinit.exe."
It's located in the /WINDOWS/SYSTEM32 subdirectory. You can copy it from another xp computer
(suggest matching updated pro vs home files). Use your harddrive as a slave on another computer
if necessary.

*safe mode: Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard during boot up.

Then you gotta ask: how did that file get deleted? It's a popular file to attack by malware authors and
some anti-virus software will delete it as part of an infection cleansing.

Toshiba DynaBook T4 Model Laptop is just too slow to Boot / Load


Use registry cleaner like cCleaber, uniblue registry editor or Advanced System Optimizer and configure it to lave only essential programs to start-up, optimize system performance, set menu delay and ability to skip non-essential programs on Start-up. I personally use Advanced System Optimizer for the past 3-4 years and it has worked wonders....sodeep
