Hi, I had omnipass on my laptop, a 32-bit Vista business, and I uninstalled it. Then, the power went out and I later plugged it back in and opened to laptop. But, when it got into the login screen, my profiles didn't show up. I tried going on safe mode and they were all there, but it wouldn't show up normally. What should I do?

EDIT: I checked and the accounts are not disabled.

I've just spent the best part of 30 mins. researching this obscure problem, with little success except to say that I did see where someone managed to fix it by running the Error Checker in safe mode, or I should say they ran the Error Checker and when the system rebooted on completion, the problem was gone and the normal, populated Welcome Screen appeared, so whether it was the error-check that fixed it or just a coincidence is anyone's guess.

You probably already know how to check the disk for file-system errors but just in case:

1. Start Windows in Safe Mode.
2. Right-click the 'C' drive and choose 'Properties'.
3. Click the 'Tools' tab.
4. Click "Check Now"
5. Make sure the option to "Automatically fix file-system errors" is ticked (default).
6. Restart the PC and Error Checker" will run before Windows loads.

Hope that works.
If not, please re-post here & and I'll research it some more.
