    I have never dealt with a "interactive Logon Process intialization has failed" error with Windows 7, but I did have a client who's Windows Vista computer did have this error. I had to go the their house, take their Windows Vista install CD and run a system repair off the CD. After the repair work was done, I re-started their computer and the problem appeared to be solved, the computer booted normal and was fully accessible.

    Don't know if this helps, I hope is does..... :)

    What? Are they not handing out Window 7 Operating System Disks with new computers anymore, or at least an O.E.M. disk? Are they not handing out a Windows 7 Operating System Disks when you walk into a store and buy the Operating System off the shelf? Oh I see...........let me guess.............your O.S. is on the mighty cloud!

    I was just being funny with that last, I know they still hand out the disks, you need to try and locate the disk that matches up to your Operating System, not any ole disk, the disk that was used to install your O.S. originally.

    After that CD is located, just follow what I said and you should be okay!

    Okay, when you get or recover the DVD Windows 7 disc, you can fix the computer

    "Plus does the CD have to be the one the computer started with and will it wipe everthing from my computer?"...

    Windows 7, Vista and Office 2007 and higher are DVD's. If you don't have a DVD optical drive, you won't be able to read a DVD. No it doesn't have to be the same disc. Yes it will wipe the drive. This is the best option
