Thank you, Excal...I really appreciate your help, and jumped in headfirst with your advice.

Except something really bad just occured.

Everything was running smoothly... in regards to your instructions.


two little discrepancies occured (and one BIG ONE, which i'll get into later)


- step 7...there was no

O23 - Service: Windows Update (WindowsUpdate) - Unknown owner - C:\WINNT\system32\usrinit.exe (file missing)


to fix.


-Step 9 there was no "cvcavc.exe" to remove...


now for the BIG problem, and why i haven't been able to get online for the last 2 days.... :tazz:


I finished step 12, then I went to reboot....THEN....

whenever i startup and log into windows 2000, I get this "administrator" log in prompt....

then i click enter, then I get into windows.....one major problem...

after I click enter, I'll get a
"loading your personal settings......applying settings"

then I get the log in box again!

I tried all the different modes....safe mode, last known good configuration, etc etc and I could not get past the log in prompt.

(I have a hunch the erasing of the windows update, or userinit or something was used to authenticate me into my system and I could not get in.)

I even tried to reinstall my windows 2000...but it wouldn't work, cuz i didn't have enough space.

so....the only way i could get into my windows 2000 system...was to reformat my entire system where I lost all my pictures, music, papers, files.

:)


so now i'm slightly devastated, and still reinstalling drivers and such....

I do appreciate the help, though. Just wanted to give you a heads up.

thanks.

Well I do see a problem there if you did delete userinit.exe.

The file u were suppose to delete was usrinit.exe. I am sorry I was clearer on that and I do wish you the best of luck. Sorry about the loss of your documents and pics.
