Here's what's going on:

When I turn on my computer, it opens up the welcome screen with the multiple profiles listed.

I click on a profile, it loads, and then (the problem) it closes the profile immediately.

Then, it goes back to the welcome screen.

I have no idea what is causing this. Please help. Anything would be great.

Hi nolefan88...

Does it do this on all the user accounts or just the one?

Have you tried booting into Safe Mode? Do the accounts work as they should there?

Actually, what I have in mind is a repair install to see if we can get this installation working again.

Try this REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's

Once this repair has completed, you will have to download all Windows Updates again.
