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:
AUTORUN.INF
DOCS
DOTNETFIX
I386
etc.

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
etc.

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.

I have a Dell latitude e4310 laptop my 10 year old has somehow changed the password and locked my computer. Can you please help


If you haven't set a password for the Administrator account you could try to log in as an Administrator then change your password back. First you need to change how users log on.

1. Click Start
2. Click Settings
3. Click Control Panel
4. Click User Accounts
5. Click Change the way users log on or off
6. Deselect Use the Welcome screen
7. Click Apply options

Exit Control Panel. Then Restart computer, hold F8 when rebooting and choose SafeMode when prompted.

When Log on Prompt appears type in Administrator as user and leave password blank ( this is the Windows default password)

This will let you boot into Windows where you can go back to Control Panel, User Accounts and change your account password.

Then just reboot normally and enter new password.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Dell Inspiron e1505 running XP professional SP3 freezes after login.


Your profile might be corrupted. You can try boot into safemode and see if you can log in from there. In order to boot into safemode, you have to press F8 button during startup. Then select boot with safemode, wait for a little splash screen of text to go away. you should be able to login from there.

If you can't login as yourself, try login as administrator account. Then create a new account.

Ok after my computer boots up and i log in the icons come up and like a minute later it all freezes i cant do anything please help i dont have any computer experience


Try accessing safemode or safemode with networking,
if you're able to access safemode or safemode with networking without having the same problem disable start up items and services of your computer and if your able to access safemode that only means that one of the software in your start up item is causing the problem and if you're not able to access it run the hardware diagnostic of your computer ( if that's a dell you'll need to access it in f12 ) if the test passed without any errors you'll need to reinstall your operating system but if it fails then it give you an error contact tech support of dell give them error they tell you what you need to replace. By the way if your just gonna end up reinstalling your operating system, BACK UP your files first before doing so.

HD infected, run external anti-virus, still logs off instantly


Restart the laptop and tap F8 to get into safe mode and click on administrator. Go to the control panel > users > and create another user, log off administrator and reboot. When system reboots, it will give you a choice of which user to log to, pick the new one and run internal scans with the programs below. Download and install....run their updates and perfrom a quick check only. With CCleaner, run cleaner and then registry fix.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 wont load up


I'd suggest first removing your memory modules and reinsert one at a time.

But, I think your operating system is compromised, due to Spyware, etc.

Since your system won't boot in Safe Mode, your only other option is to repair or reinstall your operating system.

Hope this helps.
