hmmm, pinning wheels mostly.

I am not 100 percent what g2i2r4 is looking for so I will PM and ask. At first glance, I agree it seems for all the world like an association problem, but I am fairly certain it is not, but rather a partially corrupted critical componant of windows.

it is so odd that the problem goes away and comes back, and seems to manifest itself in different ways from time to time. The foreign language popup---that's new.

I understand the reluctance to run a repair of windows, and truthfully, I am not even convinced a repair will fix this issue.

We can see what happens. I've looked just about everywhere to find a tricker or find that logoff screen. But I don't see it to be honest.
In these results I see associations that are the way they should be.

You did have a CD?
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type sfc /scannow, and then click OK.
Windows may ask you for the CD.

Let me know what happens.

Also can you tell me when all this started. Did you just install something, removed a virus, ran Tweak UI....

My pc seems to be running fine.
No viruses/spyware at all.
All of the assoc. files appear to be working.
The only problem now is at the log off of my username.
My brother in law got on my pc and dl'd something. Then all of sudden I had these problems.
I have a cd,.. should I try to scan?? It wont reformat or anything, right??
