Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
Everytime it logs me off right away, tried safemode and rebooting does not work, run a detailed test everything showed as ok or passed.... What do I do?
Your userinit.exe file is probably missing or damaged.
Insert your Windows XP CD and restart the computer.
At the prompt 'Press any key to boot from CD', press Enter.
Windows Setup will load. This takes a few minutes.
After Setup loads, press R on your keyboard to enter the Recovery Console.
At the prompt to select 'Which Windows installation would you like to log onto', on your keyboard press the number of the installation. This will usually be 1 unless you are dual-booting.
You will get to a prompt C:\WINDOWS
You now have to locate your CD drive. The CD drive letter will depend on if/how your hard drive is partitioned and the number of CD drives. To do this:
Type D: and press Enter
If there is a valid D: drive type in dir
You are looking for a listing of files that will look something like this:
If D: doesn't give this result try typing in E: followed by dir
If E: doesn't give this result try typing in F: followed by dir
When you have located the CD drive type in the following:
expand i386\userinit.ex_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 /y
(Note the spaces: after expand; before C:; before /y
and that's a letter i in front of 386
and that's an underscore after ex)
Press the Enter key.
You should get a confirmation that the file was expanded.
Restart the computer by pressing the power button, remove the CD, and boot up normally.

Tips for a great answer:
Try booting into safemode with command prompt and running the commands below.Press F 5
In safe mode with command prompt.
Type the following commands hitting enter after each.
Then reboot the machine and see if you are able to log into the test account and perform diagnostics it will be an admin account so anything you do from within it should stick.
net user test /add
net localgroup administrators test /add
