I have IBM laptop. When it boot into window, then I try to login as administrator with local admin account, loading personal setting...... For few seconds, It log off immediately. I have tried loading in recovery console as microsoft suggested by command copying userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe in the C:\windows\system32, but it does not either. My machine installed Lavasoft Antispyware on it. Please suggest any help. Thanks for everyone for replying this post.

Currently, my option is to re-install Windows by selecting Repair windows.

Thanks Keith,
I will try it tomorrow, then I will let you the result of this process. This morning, I try to logon to Safe mode, but it does not log me into windows. I have not tried to load safe mode with command prompt, but I did tried to logon the Windows Recovery consoles and it successfully logon to it.

It is a very good suggestion for system restoring utility.

Thanks very much.

Hi Keith,
I did not do the system restore for my system. I started the Windows repair, then I could not stop it from repairing. Once I shut it down completely. The system starts right into the installation mode. I tried that the system just before load into windows, then I press F8. I make the selection as you suggested in the post SYSTEM RESTORE. Another window pop up stating window can not entering Safe Mode with Command. The only option I have is repairing Windows.

Thanks a lot Keith.

When it started the repair, why would you want to stop it?
