I ran across one of the threads here about the same problem and really didn't see any viable solutions. So I'm starting a new thread.
I know my way around a computer, inside and out.

The Problem:
Log in with password, hit enter and it automatically logs off.

The story:
I got this call to reset the password for these guys. They added more ram and the system wanted to log into Admin. They couldnt remember the password. So I went over there, resite the password and then this problem started.

They usually didnt log into Admin, but it was the only user name listed. (This computer is part of a 6 computer network for an at home business). So I did a little bit of searching on the web there and found mostly stuff on mailware. We ended up reinstalling windows on top of its self and nothing changed. I now have the computer at home and put the HHD in an enclosure to run scans on it. Did a few searches for some mailware .dll's. Nothing is doing the job. I can get the data saved but Im not to sure about this guys installed software. I have access to loads of tech software and know my way around an XP system.

Any ideas?


Thanks

Im needing to find some type of solution by tonight to get this thing done for the job it is needed for. You guys seem to be a buch of nice people so I am starting here. :)

I have fixed that error before by running a repair off the installation CD.

Thanks for the help and the links. It not mailware and I have already ran a scan on the hard drive. I tried using that fix from M$ and when I tried to expand the files it gave me an access denied LOL GG Microsoft. In any case I took the files, renamed them and extracted them and placed them in the system32 folder, (With help from an enclosure) and we'll see how it goes. I called the guy and have an extra day :)

We'll see how it goes after I get back from work.
