Question about Dell Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I turned my laptop on today and for
some reason the 'user accounts welcome screen' came up, which normally
When I clicked my account, it quickly said 'Loading Personal Settings' under my account name before the screen flashed black (as if my desktop was about to load) and the welcome screen returned, with 'Saving Settings' quickly flashing under my account name before the welcome screen return to its original state. I clicked my account name a few more times, and the same happened each time.
Any ideas on a solution would be great appreciated. :)
If you boot into safe mode* and have same problem, you might be missing a file called "userinit.exe."
It's located in the /WINDOWS/SYSTEM32 subdirectory. You can copy it from another xp computer
(suggest matching updated pro vs home files). Use your harddrive as a slave on another computer
*safe mode: Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard during boot up.
Then you gotta ask: how did that file get deleted? It's a popular file to attack by malware authors and
some anti-virus software will delete it as part of an infection cleansing.
