I have been having the incredibly frustrating logon-logoff boot loop for a few days now on my primary Windows XP machine, and cant seem to shake it. I have recently tried to follow the procedures outlined here:

http://www.geekstogo...Off-t15771.html

But in my system32 directory the two files 'userinit.exe' and 'wsaupdater.exe' do not exist!
could this be the main problem???
if so how can i get these files back, or what should i do instead??

thanks in advance. any help is much appreciated.
