So I restarted the PC in safe mode, and was able log in that way, and tried to run RegistryBooster to start there. The scan worked fine, came up with 300 or so errors, but because I was in safe mode I couldn't move the RegistryBooster screen so that I could see the bottom of it to click "repair", or whatever that button at the bottom says. I guess my first question is, if this is even a good idea, how in the world do I click that button if I can't see it in safe mode because of the visuals of that mode?
I also tried doing system restore in safe mode, and each time I try to do that it says that the system couldn't be restored to that date when I restart into safe mode again.
Anyway, after that I restarted after trying Registry Booster, I was able to get to the normal Windows log in screen once again, and when I tried to log into my main account, it actually made the windows log in sound, started to load the desktop, but just a few seconds later it made the windows log OUT sound, and went back to the main Windows log in screen, and when I try to log into either of my accounts, it does the same thing - logs in then logs rightback out.
Ok, I've been told it could be possible that my USERINIT.EXE has been deleted somehow. If so, how do I fix that?
This is such a mess.
I use AVG, and it looks like many people have the same problem with it, where it can delete the above mentioned file.
I can't do anything here at work, but I'd like to get started on this as soon as I get home tonight. So, what do I need to do to be able to get things set back straight? Thanks in advance guys!
Anything I do will need to be done in safe mode until I can fix this problem. I know that goes without saying, but still.
