You may not be able to log on to system using either Normal Mode or Safe Mode. This occur only when Winlogon service tries to load the Windows default shell (explorer.exe) and user shell (userinit.exe) from registry. This service searches for Explorer.exe and Userinit.exe in the following path of registry:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Edit these values and type the correct path of shell :

Shell = explorer.exe
Userinit=X:\windows\system32\userinit.exe

NOTE: These files may also be deleted by spywares. You may need to extract them using Windows CD.

Steps for rectifying this problem:
Log on to a networked computer.
Run Regedit.exe
Point your cursor to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Select File > Connect Remote Registry
Type computer name (infected computer)
Navigate to the following location in registry of destination or infected computer

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Edit these two values in right pane:

Shell
Userinit

Change these two values to
Shell=explorer.exe
Userinit = x:\windows\system32\userinit.exe

Exit from Registry
Restart Infected computer.
You should be able to log on to computer

    If this does not work then probably try using a different user / administrator.



    If it works then try to install an anti spyware to get rid of the spyware.



    If this does not work kindly comment then the only solution would be to go for a complete system reinstall or a complete PC restore.

How can change user name and password in router D-Link?


Reading this question, I'm thinking that you want to change the SSID, this is the name that shows up when searching for wireless connection. First, you must find out what is your gateway, this is the main IP address. It usually is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. Once you have that information, you need to log in the router, to log in, open a browser and type the gateway (Ex. http://192.168.0.1) A new window will pop up asking for a log in information. The most common default log in info are:
Username Password

admin admin
root 1234
admin password

Once you had successfully log in, take a look at what you have in front of you. There must be a tab name Wireless, click it. Look for SSID and change it to what you want to name it. Security should be in the same path, if not, save your work and log in again, but since you already change the SSID, you must search for the wireless connection again, and input the password, log in again.
If security is within wireless, then just head over to password and change it. You can also change the encryption type, I recommend WPA 2 personal. Once everything is all set up with the new SSID and the new password, click Save.
Search for the new SSID or router with your computer and input your new password once found by the computer./ Good luck.

I am trying to get into my facebook from another computer and I can't seem to log in. Is there a screen somewhere, where I can enter my name and password to take me to my home. it just keeps going back...


You will first need to log out of the other person's account. Just click the small gear icon in the top right and click log out. Once you log out you can then enter your email and password to log in.

Just don't forget to log out of your account once your finished or others will be able to access your account on that computer.

Hope that helps!

No start task bar in safe mode


It sounds like explorer.exe is being turned off. When you log in to Safe Mode hit Ctl+Alt+Del to bring the Task Manager and see if explorer.exe is running under Processes. If not, you can go to the Applications tab in Task Manager and click the New Task button and simply type in explorer.exe.
If this does not give you your Start Menu and Task Bar then you need to take your computer back to the repair service and have them fix it properly this time. Otherwise, you'll have to reinstall the operating system.

Logs on ok then shows no icons and goes straight to logging off


Got any enemies? :)

This is a long shot but i used to play this prank on people in college.

Put a logoff or shutdown shortcut in their startup folder. As soon as the PC starts up, it immediately shuts down or logs off.

I think safe mode is the best way to fix that, but again that is probably not the problem.

Will not save


Are you logging in as a different user ? Goto START then CONTROL PANEL then USER ACCOUNTS. If you are the only user of the computer, then you can delete all users except administrator. You then can reboot and windows should log you in as admin only. Just make sure you have the proper password. Please note that you can only delete use accounts if you have that privilege. If you don't then you need to goto START, then LOG OFF. Then you can log in a admin but again, you need the admin password.
