Hey and thanks to whomever can help here. Ok, when I start the computer up, I click on my user icon: 1. The box says logging on and the music plays. 2. Then the box immediately saves settings and logs right back off. It does this with all user icons. I tried starting in safe mode and all other modes but it goes right to user icons and the same thing happens, even with Administrator. I know that certain spy-ware programs remove a file when that spy program is removed. I use Spy-Bot and recently added System Mechanic 6 (which I'm not too fond off.) I am trying to add the “copy userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe” at the C\windows\system32 prompt. Anyway, I tried to re-boot the system with a boot-disk and with the XP CD to get to prompt but the computer does not respond to them. It goes right to the user icons, I click on one and it logs off. I can't get to DOS or anything. I use Windows XP Home Edition on a Dell. Please help.
