Launch Notepad (not wordpad), and copy and paste the Bolded below into a new text file. Save it as file name: "fixme.reg" (not including the quotes). Save as file type: All files (*.*) and save it on your Desktop.


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

Now double-click on the fixme.reg file you saved and click on the Yes button when it asks if you would like to merge the information. Once you get a successful message delete fixme.reg.

Restart your PC

Download pfind
extract the files to a folder of there own, a good place would be
C:\Pfind, open the folder and run pfind.bat, a text will open , post it.
