The repair CD that came with it doesn't need to be run from inside Windows. All you need to do is turn the machine on, and boot the machine with the CD itself (just as you would if you were installing a fresh copy of Windows).

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 : http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/ 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
bartpe4.png
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:
C:\Windows\System32\Userinit.exe,

How to fix system immediately logging off when you log on


The issue is the result of a change of the USERINIT key in the registry under the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS NT\CurrentVersion\WINLOGON\USERINIT
The correct string is USERINIT=C:\windows\system32\userinit.exe
to do this you will need a bartPE or other cd that is bootable and will give you access to the NTFS files system and the registry. One is the Ultimate Boot CD: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html
This issue is caused by Malware that has usually been removed from the system but the removal tool did not correct the USERINIT registry key that was changed by the Malware (Usually to C:\windows\system32\winlogon or some variant.

Laptop logs off when i log on. what can i do


Edit these values and type the correct path of shell :
Shell = explorer.exe
Userinit=X:\windows\system32\userinit.exe

NOTE: These files may also be deleted by spywares. You may need to extract them using Windows CD.
Steps for rectifying this problem:
Log on to a networked computer.
Run Regedit.exe
Point your cursor to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Select File > Connect Remote Registry
Type computer name (infected computer)
Navigate to the following location in registry of destination or infected computer

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Edit these two values in right pane:

Shell
Userinit

Change these two values to
Shell=explorer.exe
Userinit = x:\windows\system32\userinit.exe
Exit from Registry
Restart Infected computer.
You should be able to log on to computer.
if it not work then go to back steps and just copy orwrite the file userinit.exe


Performing the above steps will resolve the issue.

Hope this helps.

When logging on computer immediately logs off


Hello,

The probem with your system is that, your

"userinit.exe" file is corrupt and needs to be

replaced. It is possible that it became corrupt or

infected and an antivirus program that you use

removed it from your system.

So what you need to do is:

Get An Original Windows CD,

Insert it into your CDROM, and restart your system.

While your system is restarting, go into the system

setup/BIOS, and select the boot sequence to boot

from the CD.

Reboot your system again and let the Windows CD

load.

Once you get to the first menu,

Press R for recovery console. Select the OS you

want to boot in (usually C:\windows), and enter your

administrator password.

If you don't have one or can't remember if you do, just

Press [enter].

Then, once you get the C:\Windows prompt, type:

D: or E: or whichever is the letter for your CD drive

where the Windows OS disk is located.

Once you are there, assuming it is E: , type:

CD I386 and Press [enter];

You should now be in E:\I386>.

Now type:

EXPAND userinit.ex_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32

and press [enter].

Remember that there is a space between the

userinit.ex_ and the C:\Windows\system32.

This will put a new copy of userinit.exe into your

windows system32 directory.

Next, type EXIT and press [enter]

Your System will reboot automatically and you would

be able to logon to your desktop.

Try this out and let me know how it goes.

Hope this helps.

Goodluck.

Computer loads personal settings and then logs off instantly


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.

When i turn on my computer it loads up and everything but it just go right back to the windows xp page so im not able to do anything what do i do ?


The most likely cause is that you either lost your USERINIT binary, or Windows is looking for it somewhere else. Both may be caused (and usually are) my a virus or malware.

The simplest solution is to run a repair install from the XP Boot CD.

If the USERINIT was simply misplaced or removed, it is possible to recover it by:

- booting the system from XP boot CD-ROM
- clicking R to enter the recovery console
- running the following command:

expand d:\i386\userinit.ex_ c:\windows\system32

- as soon as the file has been expanded and copied, type "Exit" to reboot the system.


This will recover a faulty USERINIT, but won't be able to fix a wrong userinit pointer in the registry. To do that you need a repair install:

How do i fix boot on my laptop


Seems that adware ,spyware or a virus caused this.
I found a solution that could work from this forum :
http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/Windows-XP-Logs-Then-Immediately-Logs-Off-t15771.html

It's an advanced technique and you will need your Windows XP setup CD.

Boot using your winxp cd.
Enter recovery console.(press R on first screen)
at the command prompt go to

C:/windows/system32

next type:
Dir *.exe

If you find, it, type

copy userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe

Exit and reboot normally. You should now be able to logon.

Run regedit

Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\

In the right pane, you should see

C:\WINDOWS\System32\wsaupdater.exe,

Change it so that it reads:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\userinit.exe

That should solve the problem
