I have spent the past 3 days working on this computer, i finally had just about everything perfect other than a decent registry fixer. So i downloaded WinASO Registry Optimizer (2.5, if i remember correctly). . I performed the "Speed-Up Your Computer" (or something akin to that, cant remember exactly what it is called) and it asked me to reboot once it had completed. Now every time i start up windows, it begins to log in, and almost before it starts, it windows immediately starts logging off again . .a terrible cycle. . I cant be confident about whether or not this is a direct result of running that WinASO scan, but im guessing it is. I created a sytem restore point right before i done the scan, but i cant even get into windows to utilise the restore. . any ideas?
