I was immediately being logged out of windows XP as soon as I logged in, and after reading a few similar posts here, it looked like the best solution would be to repair XP, since I couldn't actually get in there to try anything else. I followed the excellent instrutions I found here and let the whole thing run. After it rebooted, it brought me to the black screen with the microsoft XP logo and says "please wait" and an hourglass. I've been stuck here for about 45 minutes. Is this to be expected? The last part of the processt took about 40 minutes, but I was expecting that, and it gave me that lovely countdown. Should I keep waiting, or did something go wrong?
Thanks in advance.
