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.
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.
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.
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
