    interactive logon error box pops up when windows restarts. screen is black except for pop up box with only two selctions. 1. use the x in the upper right corner or 2. use the ok button.

    when i do 1 or 2 it pops back up same window with same options; it also says check error logging in the box but i can not get past the interactive logone box to do anythng. it will not even let me bring up the window button lower bottom left hand side nor use the control alt delete to bring up task manager to see whats is or is not running. we were playing a dvd movie when all this problem started.

Interactive logon process failed

I would attempt either trying to login as administrator, and if not then a Windows OS repair with the operating system disk. This should repair any of the OS files allowing you to login again.

You have to make a new account on the computer to resolve this issue (Or a fresh format/factory reset). If you are able to log in at all, make a new account and move your data. Otherwise, factory reset might be the easiest solution. You can recover your data by removing the hard drive and using an external hard drive to usb cable if you are not able to log in at all.

Interactive logon process initialization has failed

Can you start on safe mode? If you can do that and go to C:\ and type dir/p and look for any file regardless of its extensions that created at the time you lost control, and keep note of it then logout and start again in safe mode by pushing F8 at the startup few times tell you bypass the window startup and click on safe mode…login as admin and uninstall the software then search for any file that was created on the same day that you had the issues with and delete them including the one in the recycle bin. Logout and restart again as admin from safe mode and try to login to the net and go to free scan website and scan your system. If that did not work you can try to restore to the last day that you can and that will not effect your folder that you need unless it is new and after the restore dat..let me know how that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we can improve on it with your help. God bless

Next step is remove hard drive and see if it is recognized in another computer. The Hard Drive could just be bad, but you need to rule out the motherboard drive controllers that could also be bad. Also try a known good drive in your system.

My computer screen keeps going blank then a error message appears saying that logon process has failed to create the secuity options dialog

There are two soltions to this problem that i know of

More than likely this happens because you have a non-Vista compatible
security suite installed. Have you installed some kind of
firewall/antivirus/whatever suite? If so, which?

and the second path to follow which i have heard of is that your C Drives S.M.A.R.T Data has errors on it , the only way to fix it then is to buy a new Hard Drive and re-install Vista , then add your old hard drive as a slave and get the data that you want off it.
