After finishing the scan, I rebooted the system. it comes up to the login screen but when I click on a user the systems starts, goes to a desktop screen for a moment, then goes back to the login screen telling me it is closing network connections and logging off. multiple reboots give the same results.
I looked around on the web for some answers and tried replacing the userinit.exe file with one from my original XP installation cd. same results.
This is the abridged version of what I have tried, but I'm out of ideas.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
