Caught in a loop

Using XP Home. I started the computer and was asked to log in (which normally isn't required). I clicked on the user name and got the "loading your personal settings" message. It then immedidately gives me a "Logging off" message.

I rebooted into safe mode and created a new user account, then deleted the old user account. The new account has Administrator privileges. I rebooted again and am still caught in the same loop.

Any ideas?

Logon in safe mode and check event viewer.

Start > Run > eventvwr.exe

Can you see errors there (around the time when you logged on in non-safe mode)?

This is an application error record; a security audit record; and a system error record.

can you post them here?
You'll have to expand the records on the left pane and check for errors on the right pane

No, I can't. It's on the computer I can't get to run.

The errors under Application are Source: VSS, Source: ccEvtMgr, and Source: EventSystem.

The errors under System are Source: DCOM, Source: Service Control Manager, Source: Browser, Source: NetBT, Source: Browser, Source: W32Time, and Source Dhcp.

Just found out from a tech about the Sober LSASS virus . Evidently, it does exactly what's happened to my computer. I'm running Ad-Aware and will next run my anti-virus software.
