Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Userinit Logon application has stopped working

When I log on to windows normally it will give me this error along with a windows that says windows will be restarted in one minute please save your work. and then it restarts. I can log on in safe mode but I cannot run certain programs, such as internet explorer or any mail program, opera, but firefox will work pretty good

ok here are the things that I have tried so far and none has worked yet

4 different system restore back up to a month before the problem
created a new logon and deleting the old logon
ran several different adware programs
ran regedit and verified the setting for shell and userinit was correct
I tried the repair on the windows vista disk
I tried to upgrade off of the disk again but it is disabled
I have tried several other things but nothing has changed

I could do a complete system reformat but I have a lot of files and programs that i do not have the disk for anymore that I would rather not lose
but if i cannot fix it any other way that is what i will do
any ideas would be great
thanks

HAL.DLL is missing or corrupted, xp doesn't boot


if it was running for more than 30 hours, it wasn't doing much. You can try copying hal.dll off of a known, good-working XP pc, and replace it with the one on your broken PC. It's better if you extract it from i386 folder but grabbing it from another pc should work fine.

I am getting a message my userinit logon application has stopped working i am using windows 7


This is a problem with the startup, it is trying to find the userinit portion of the boot and it cannot or it has become corrupt, the only to fix this is to rebuild the startup. Try inserting the installation disc and selecting automatic startup repair. If that is not an option or does not work, you will save yourself alot of time and trouble by reinstalling.

When my computer is turned on it shows the blue login page, when i click on the login icon, it goes to log-in but logs out automatically by itself.


Hello jwbandit402,

Try booting the computer into "Safe Mode" by pressing the F8 key at startup and see if it will continue with the login process. If not try performing a "Repair Installation" with your Windows Install disc to repair any corrupted system files that may be keeping you from logging in.

Hope this helps. Don't forget to leave feedback. Thank you.

How do i fix boot on my laptop


Seems that adware ,spyware or a virus caused this.
I found a solution that could work from this forum :
http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/Windows-XP-Logs-Then-Immediately-Logs-Off-t15771.html

It's an advanced technique and you will need your Windows XP setup CD.

Boot using your winxp cd.
Enter recovery console.(press R on first screen)
at the command prompt go to

C:/windows/system32

next type:
Dir *.exe

If you find, it, type

copy userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe

Exit and reboot normally. You should now be able to logon.

Run regedit

Navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\

In the right pane, you should see

C:\WINDOWS\System32\wsaupdater.exe,

Change it so that it reads:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\userinit.exe

That should solve the problem
