Does it happen when you try to go into Safe Mode?

Sounds like your usernit file is corrupted.
Hello user,

We will have to create a small 'fix CD' to solve this problem.

  • Please create a new folder on your hard drive called RecoveryDisk
  • Download the recovery_console_cd.zip and unzip it to the newly created RecoveryDisk folder.
  • Download the correct floppy disk setup package for your operating system from Microsoft and save it to the RecoveryDisk folder;
    XP Home Original: Here
    XP Pro Original: Here
    XP Home SP1: Here
    XP Pro SP1: Here
    XP Home SP2: Here
    XP Pro SP2: Here
  • Rename the downloaded file to Bootdisk.exe
  • Double click the RecoveryCD.bat file and follow the instructions.
  • When you get asked if you want to burn a CD, type y and hit enter.
  • A pop-up should come up, please click on Close
This just created a file called XPRC.ISO
Then please download MagicISO and install it.

Start MagicISO. You should see a window informing you about the full version of MagicISO.
In the bottom right select Try It! and the program will open.
Click on File and then on Open and navigate to the XPRC.ISO file you downloaded. Select it, and click Open.

First, we'll need to add a clean version of userinit.exe to the current XPRC.ISO
  • In the upper right pane, double click on the i386 folder.
  • Right click in the upper right pane and select Add Files...
  • Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and select userinit.exe
  • Then click Open to add userinit.exe to the CD image.
  • Click File and select Save As...
  • Name the file RCplus and save it somewhere you can find it.
Next, we'll need to burn the newly created image to a disk that we can use to fix the problem.
  • Put a blank CD-R disk in your CD burner and close the tray. If an AutoPlay window opens, close it.
  • Click on Tools and select Burn CD/DVD with ISO.... A window will appear.
  • Click on the little folder to the right of CD/DVD Image File then navigate to the newly created RCplus.iso Image file and click Open.
  • In the CD/DVD Writing Speed drop-down menu choose the 8X setting.
  • Under Format make sure that Mode 1 is selected.
  • And finally, click on the Burn it! button to burn RCplus.iso to disk.
Once the disk is burned, put it in the machine you want to fix and restart it.
Boot to the CD just as you would with a Windows XP disk.
At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to enter the Recovery Console.
Choose the installation to be repaired by number (usually 1) and press Enter.
When you are asked for the Administrator password, enter the password or leave it blank (default) and press Enter.

At the C:\Windows> prompt, type the following commands pressing Enter after each one. Note: Watch the spaces.

D:
cd i386
copy userinit.exe c:\windows\system32
exit

After putting in the third command, you should receive the message 1 file copied which will indicate that the operation succeeded.
Now take out the CD and reboot your computer to normal mode. Try to log in and it should let you back in.

Not sure what went wrong.
Double check your steps as I count 4 steps before you rename anything.
  • Please create a new folder on your hard drive called RecoveryDisk
  • Download the recovery_console_cd.zip
  • unzip it to the newly created RecoveryDisk folder
  • Download the correct floppy disk setup package for your operating system from Microsoft and save it to the RecoveryDisk folder

Do you have or can you borrow a XP installation disk of the same type you have on your system? Home, Media or Pro
The steps can then be done using the last part of the instructions.

Boot to the CD just as you would with a Windows XP disk.
At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to enter the Recovery Console.
Choose the installation to be repaired by number (usually 1) and press Enter.
When you are asked for the Administrator password, enter the password or leave it blank (default) and press Enter.

At the C:\Windows> prompt, type the following commands pressing Enter after each one. Note: Watch the spaces.

D:
cd i386
copy userinit.exe c:\windows\system32
exit


After putting in the third command, you should receive the message 1 file copied which will indicate that the operation succeeded.
Now take out the CD and reboot your computer to normal mode. Try to log in and it should let you back in.
