Hi. Recently I had trouble starting windows. The background wallpaper would load but there would be absolutely nothing. No desktop. A popup message would appear saying userinit.exe - Application error and would tell me to press ok. When I do, nothing happened and I had to restart my computer. I used the Windows Repair on the XP Professional CD thinking it would work and it actually made my situation worse. Now, When I turn on my computer, after the black windows loading screen disappears, a blue screen appears with "setup is being restarted........." and there's a quick popup i'm not really able to catch titled lsass.exe - application error. My computer would then turn off and it is in an endless loop of that problem. I looked everywhere for a solution but can't seem to find one. Any help would be appreciated! :)

Please do not post multiple threads for the same issue.
It gets very confusing for the Staff trying to cope with traffic.

Unfortunately you will have to wait in the queue, for one of the volunteers, like everyone else.
If you have been waiting for 3 days or longer, you can post a thread in The Waiting Room, but be sure that you have read the Pinned Topic before you post.
