ok so yesterday when i tried to turn on my computer, everything was going fine until it logged my account on. after i was logged on it immediatly logged me off, and went back to the account selection. i tried logging on again, and the same thing happened. my computer was just fine the night before, and i had even recently run a spyware and virus check and both didnt find any problems. so then i did a full system restore (my computer has a dedicated hard drive for doing system restorees) and that worked for about a day. my computer was fine, no problems
but when i tried starting it up this morning, it did the same thing again. so this time i tried restoring it to an earlier checkpoint. but the only checkpoint was yesterday, all the others must hav been erased when i did the full system restore.
any suggestions?

Press the power button and then keep tapping F8 until you get options, select safe mode, select the administrator account

If it starts to your account from the restore point from yesterday, log on and set a restore point, do this for a few days

Do you have any programmes which clean the registry

Have you got any antispyware programes which report anything

Leave the cleaner for a while, XP disc clean up should do most of it, especially if there aren't any particular problems

Check if any anti virus / antispyware programmes are removing anything

i tried restoring to the day before
(saturday)
and its still logging me off
i also tried restoring my registry because crap cleaner makes a back up when it cleans the registry, and that also didnt help.
any other ideas?
i could try doing a system restore using the discs i got with the computer
normally i just do it using the dedicated hard drive, so that way it baks up my files...but i think it might be one of the files thats causing it.
