I wasn't sure what userinit.exe was, so after I googled it, i was misinformed that it was bad, so I removed it from startup. After I restarted my computer, I was automatically logged off whenever i tried to log on.
After reading some solutions about getting userinit.exe back, i found that i needed to get it off of the installation cd. I did all the steps to get it back. And I am pretty sure that it worked. But after still getting the same error of being logged out, I found that I have a diffrent problem.
I think that I have userinit.exe in c:windows/system32/userinit.exe, but, It is no longer triggered to start at luanch, since i removed it with Autoruns.
From looking at a site, I found that it is supposed to be launched here :
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Userinit =C:\windows\system32\userinit.exe,
but I am not sure how to make it actually luanch again at startup. I was wondering if anyone one knows how to make userinit.exe startup in it's original location again. Is there a way I can configure the file from the command promt in the repair option of the windows installation CD?
edit: problem solved.
