    Hi

    I never used a password---it always went right to my desktop without asking for a password. It still keeps shutting down .

    When you say 'don't have a password', did u ever use a password before to login to that computer, or everytime you turned the computer on, went directly to the desktop without asking you for password?

Hi,

I've run into this problem too often lately. So far I haven't managed to find a decent fix for it :( I've ended up having to backup the computer's data, reinstall windows, and restore all the data.

From the times I've seen it you get to the login screen, click on your user, get the "Loading personal Settings", a quick flash of the desktop, then back to the login screen saying "saving personal settings". It would do this in both safe mode and normal mode, so I was never able to try turning off startup software or services.

Booting to the windows XP disc and running a check disc might help, but from my experience with the problem you will probably need to reinstall windows. Hopefully someone else has a better idea.

Best of luck :)

    Hi again, have you had any luck with this problem?

    I've actually run into that problem again at work today. The problem is with the "C:/Windows/System32/wininit.exe" file for Vista. For XP the file is "C:/Windows/System32/winlogon.exe". If you can replace that file somehow you should be able to log in. Putting the hard drive into another computer and accessing the files is probably your best bet.

    Hope this helps :)

It keep telling me "YOUR


I couldn't see if someone else has already posted a solution. This same error message happens to us all the time-usually after a power failure, or windows decides to reboot the computer...In any case it will be necessary to login to "user magnager"..Once in switch to the tab that says "login"...then where it says "application" use the pull down menu to "icverfiy for window"
Then select any user that is listed , then go to the bottom of the page and select "log off user"...Close the program and start Icverify again...should be good to go

Facebook the login page keeps refreshing


Reset your password, just to be sure. (Click on Forgot your Password?) Make sure Caps Lock isn't on. In your browser settings, delete your cookies and saved passwords.

Forgot my user password andcannot log on,how can i reset ?no disc


what OS are you using? XP Home or Pro? Vista? do you normally login with a username or login as "Administrator"?
You can try booting to safe mode by hitting f8 during the bootup process, choose safe mode and login as administrator without a password. If you still cannot get in that way, then you will need to use a program to reset the admin or user passwords. check this page:
http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administrator_password.htm for instructions, but understand that there is a risk of corrupting data or filesystem when messing with these kinds of tools. Get a geek friend to help you if you're not sure what you're doing.

System won't go past profile page..stuck


It seems that the Guest account profile is corrupted because of which you are unable to log in as like in previously.

In the Profile Login page, hold the Ctrl and Alt keys and press the Del key twice.

This will give you a window where you need to enter the User name and Password.

Enter the User name as administrator and leave the password column blank if you have not set any Password to the administrator account or enter the Administrator password if you have set any.

Now once you are loged into the Administrator account, create a new User from the Control Panel > User Accounts.

Set the required limitatios to the account like limited account or administrator account and log off from the administrator account.

Now, you should have the newly created user account available in the login page. Select it and you should be able to login.
