Hello again,

I'm not sure which topic this would best fit, so mods, go ahead and move if in wrong section...

ok, so heres the problem...I d/l a connection booster (TCPOptimizer I believe is the name of the program) and right after running it, my laptop won't let me log in to normal mode. I can boot up in safe mode, (edit) but everytime I try to login to Normal Mode and I click my user (it's set to admin too), it reads loading settings, then my desktop bg flashes, and it then says saving settings and logging off. So essentially, it logs in and logs off immediately...I've done the following with no luck:

ran these programs:
- McAffee Quick Clean Lite (7-pass cleaner)
- CCleaner (clean and reg fix)
- AVG Free Anti-Virus
- Ewido Anti-Malware
- Spybot Search & Destroy
- Ad-Aware SE Personal
- Disspy
- SpyCatcher Express
- CWShredder
- Abexo Free Registry Cleaner

logs for the following are at the end of this post:
- HJT
- Event Viewer
- Silent Runners

I've also disabled all startup programs to see if it was a bad line in one of those programs, but even with all disabled, I still cant log in to normal mode. My initial reasoning was this problem was due to that program I d/l, so I restored the settings and deleted the program, again with no luck. There is however one file left in C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch\TCPOPTIMIZER.EXE-00AFC21B.pf (which I just deleted in DOS)

I ran system restore to the day before I installed that program, and that did not help either.

What is wrong...I surely don't know...

Thanks in advance

Ryan

Do you have a valid XP cd?

If so, place it in your CD ROM drive and follow the instructions below

Start > Run > cmd then type

sfc /scannow (note the space)

let this run untill you get a message saying it is complete.

SFC - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.
