When ever I try to shut down my computer (it is a windows xp) this annoying message cmes up that stops it from shutting down. The message says something like 'Windows Logon UI or UL (im not sure wheater it's an I or an L) has failed to operate. Windows UI will now shut down.' it appears every three seconds, quite literly, and prevents me from opening any applications. I have had to manually shut down my computer the past four days! please help! :whistling: I don't know why this is doing this, and I haven't been messing around on my system drive...if anyone knows anything about this, please help! :blink:

Well...is is Home or Professional?

Professional is the one that I usually see this issue on.

If you have professional:

Go to Start/Run/Regedit and navigate to:

HKEY LOCAL MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsNTCurrentVersionWinlogon

In the right pane scroll down to UIHost. Double click it and type this in under Value Data: logonui.exe

Let me know if this resolves it for you.
