Ok so I have a logon/logoff loop when I logon to any of the accounts (NOTE the ones with passwords will not even go through, they won't even logon) I have tried safe mode and admin. to no avail! I have tried doing the recovery console "copy userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe" and it does not work!!! Any suggestions?

Corrupted user database, I might guess. I think you should reformat. Can't find any related info on your condition.

Ghost? What do you mean? Using ghosts like Norton Ghost and stuff?

Also, if you have any crucial data, take the HD, plug it into another computer and put the files you need into another partition/on another HD.

UPDATE ON: logon logoff loop i was able to get userinit.exe from my friend and copied it onto a floppy. went into recovery console and put "copy a:/userinit.exe c:/windows/system32/userinit.exe" then i exited and restarted the computer and clicked on one of my accounts and it sets at "loading your personal settings..." for like a minute. Next it shows my background and just sits there. i boot in safe mode, admin, ect. and it does the samething. Does anyone know what this is and how to fix it?

Means explorer.exe is acting up. When you boot to your background, press CTRL+ALT+DEL. Select the Processes tab and see whether explorer.exe is there. If it isn't, switch back to the Applications tab and select New Task. Enter explorer.exe in the prompt.

I have tried CTRL+ALT+DELETE nothing. Also i am not sure wheather it is important but when the computer was working all the sudden files were being quarenteened left and right. Thats when it got ugly none of my programs would work so i shut it down and rebooted. When i did thats when the loop started. I dont know if thats important but CTRL+ATL+DELETE wont work!

Do you know when this started to happen ? If yes
Boot to safe mode & do a system restore to a time before you had a problem.
1.Click Start.

2. Point to All Programs.

3.Point to Accessories.

4.Point to System Tools.

5. Click System Restore.

6.Follow the instructions on the wizard.
Pick a time before it started to happen.
Cheers

yeah, Im going through the same thing (I already have a thread about it)

but my problem came about after I had done an antivirus scan and it deleted/moved a lot of files...

If you have the ssame prob as mine, then a repair wont work... If someone posts on my thread, I'll let you know what worked.

I have the same problem. It happened when I stupidly deleted userinit.exe when BoClean said there was a Trojan, F/P.

Now my computer loops, can't get past the first page. Am awaiting a tech for $150. and have tried BoClean's workaround, did not work.

That was booting in repair from XP disc.

Help, anyone?
