I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Login Problem

Did you try typing in your normal User Name, and Password if you had any? (If you did NOT have a password, leave blank)

If you do get to your desktop, make sure to set the correct options in Control Panel, User Accounts. If you did NOT have to logon before, you had a fixed password or no password, and had Use Welcome Screen enabled.

I have no idea if it is the same problem. First of all I am using a wireless router, I have a internal wireless thing on my laptop. And I am able to connect and all but when i went to ebay.com and tried to log in, It leads to me a page as if I am not online. So I am wondering if it is my router settings or my laptop that makes it like that. Thank you for your help.

Hello,
I have since a cupple of days the following problems with my computer:

When i boot it up and the windows password shreen comes, i cant log in because the part of the logon screen with the username, password field, password hint etc. is missing.... here a screen shot of it (yea, its in german...guesse were I am from!):



So I logged in by pressing ctr+alt+delete twice. I used the username that was in the loginbox and since I don't even have a windows password (!), I just lett the passwordfield free and I could log in without problems. later I noticed that the account I loged in to has not admin rights but is only an visitor account. Unfortunately I dont remember what my login name is since you dont have to type it in on regular bases in windows xp.

After that I tried to boot up the computer in safe moode to get to the account "administrator" which is without password. But my safemoode seems not to be working too! I just used it several days ago and everything was ok. But now, when i boot it up in safemoode the computer turns itself of right before the loogin schreen comes!


I did several things with my computer right before I had these problems that could in my oppinion possibly have something to do with my problems.
I addded a password to my useraccount but i made up my minde and deleted it right away again.

Hello, sry for the double post but I think its clearer like this than if I would etit the first post.
I just solved my problem on my own, here what I did, for the case that somebody has a simmilar problem or is just interested.

I just gave it another shot to get into the save moode and this time it surprisingly worked. I logged into to the account "administrator". Than I whent to Start/ Run and whent to "control userpasswords2". My username was in the group "debugger users" instead of "administrators". I changed this and now everything is normal again!


I am still wondering how this happend and why i could not enter the savemoode (and why it probably worked again)..... if anybody has ideas, i would be interested!

Firefox keeps asking me for the proxy username and password - on every page, often multiple times.

Firefox, on this machine, asks me for a username and password for every single page. Just once for a very simple page with no graphics or Javascript, and several times if there are multiple items on the page: I have to login 5 times before it will show Google. This is really annoying - as you can imagine.

Firefox keeps asking me for the proxy username and password - on every page, often multiple times.

I've just installed firefox on a WinXP laptop and plugged it into a university LAN. The set up is all pretty default, you know: 8080, exceptions for local addresses and so on. The connection seems fine, and IE (finally) seems to be okay, even downloading from Windows Update, which was a real pain to get to work, but that's another story.

When I start up a browser, I have to give a username and password for the proxy: same when I download something or run an Active X control. This isn't too bad. But on Firefox, on this machine, asks me for a username and password for every single page. Just once for a very simple page with no graphics or Javascript, and several times if there are multiple items on the page: I have to login 5 times before it will show Google. This is really annoying - as you can imagine.

Also, the Add-ons and the extensions for firefox won't down load, but set off a dialog saying that it can't install because of download error -228. According to http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_...oad_Error_-228 this may be due to a firewall or spybot incompatibility.

I recently have recovered from a hard drive crash, yet was able to clone most all of the old drive and WinXP installation over to the new one. When I did, it seemed like it was booting up, and did a CHKDSK and fixed several errors in my MFT. Since then, I am able to get up to the point where it says "Starting Windows" right before it pops up my login window, but the login window to input my username/password does not show.

I figured it might be do to a corruption of my Documents and Settings folder, which XP also checks in order to login, but I can't copy the clone of that directory that I have on my other hard drive in Recovery Mode using the XP Bootable CD. It won't allow me to change to the c:\Documents and Settings directory at all, or to the backup copy of it I have on my other drive.

I do have a backup of my system state on one of my hard drives, but without access to NTBackup, which you can only run in Windows mode, I cannot restore my system state to get it running again. I've tried an In Place Reinstall of Windows, but it did not fix the problem.

Previous to the hard drive problems, I experienced a "Boot.ini is corrupt or missing" and a "HAL.dll is corrupt or missing" error. When I run bootcfg /scan from the repair console it does not find the original Windows installation on C:, only my copy of it on my E: drive (2nd hard drive).

I just purchased an HP desktop. After setup, I kept getting dropped out to the login as soon as the computer was idle. I was told this was a registry problem and to go to safe mode and run SFC. That did not resolve the problem. Then I was advised to simply disable the login by going to RUN, keying in control userpasswords2 and unchecking the password requirement. I did that. It continues to drop back to the login screen as soon as its idle. (Btw, I tried this on my Sony laptop and it worked fine). Now the login gives an icon with my name and Underneath it ways locked> switch user. I hit this and I get my name and the msg I'm already logged in. When I hit this, I'm in. I tired going back and checking and unchecking the password requirement and either way I get the same login notice. I tried running an MS registry fix as well as putting the computer into safe mode and choosing a repair. I also went to user accounts in the control panel and took my password out there. It seems to be recognizing two users from the login but there is only one established account. I tried going back to a password for administrator just to test it but I cannot. I don't have that option. I cannot do a system restore as the problem was there with setup. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I can use it as is but why should I have to put up with this on a brand new computer. I'm so frustrated! Thx in advance.

I have been working on my fiance's laptop to get it configured for the wireless network at my apartment. After making some changes (I don't recall what) to the wireless settings, I rebooted the computer.

Now she cannot log on to her laptop because the log on window does not list any domains to log on to like it used to. Clicking the "Options" button doesn't show anything new either. When we try to enter her password (to log onto the system without a domain) we get the error message that we need to make sure the username and domain are correct. But as I said before, we cannot choose a domain anymore.

Is there any way to perform a system recovery to undo whatever changes I made? If so, where can I do that. Keep in mind we cannot get past the login window.

Thanks,

Just to let you know, I am running Windows Vista Home Premium. The problem is, when I boot my laptop up its perfectly fine! I type in my password and it says welcome for about 20-25 seconds, then it moved to a black screen with the cursor and stays like that before about a minute, then I will start to show the task bar and icons, and then run fine!

Why? Any help please?

Welcome to TSF!
Takes a bit of work to fix, but it's not too difficult. i find using a Vista/Win 7 Recovery disk is the easiest method, as you don't have to guess what file name the malware used. You also don't have to build the disk, just download and burn the ISO file to a disk.


The looping logon can happen if your spyware software removed the wsaupdater.exe or winlogon86.exe malware file, or if the userinit.exe file is missing, corrupted, or being redirected. You'll need to use the Recovery Console, a Vista/Win7 DVD, or a Live CD to fix this.
If the userinit file is being redirected, you need some way to edit the Registry, so the Recovery Console won't do.

Ultimate Boot CD for Windows
BartPE CD/DVD
A Vista RE disk can be downloaded from one of these links:
Vista Recovery Environment CD
64 bit Vista
32 bit Vista

Looping Login Fix using a BartPE CD

Recovery Console Steps
Boot to the Recovery Console.
Set your system to boot from CD, either by setting the boot order in the BIOS, or using the boot menu if your system provides one, usually by pressing one of the FX keys; F9, F10, F12 are common.

Amazingly, it was no problem with the administrator account. If I grant the normal user account with administrator privillege, it can login smoothly. But, later if I remove the admin privillege back, it failed to login successfully. Hope, the experts will help me on this.

A:XP login problem

Look at what you have in the startup for the user, my guess is something is starting that requires admin rights and will hang you. You might start by using MSCONFIG to inhibit all of the startup items from running to see if this gets the user to boot. Also, have you tried logging off from the administrator and logging on to the user without booting?

I assume you've run virus/spyware scans, right?

Hey Julian

Your password should not be affected by changing languages it will always stay the same.
The only thing that may make a difference here is your keyboard layout and this should always be set to the corresponding country to which it applies.
You may or may not be able to change the keyboard layout at login

Hope this helps

Hey guys, having quite a strange problem today, hopefully some of you can shed light on it, and help me through.

It seems that i am unable to login to my profile on my computer. For a start, my account has no password, so it would usually log in by itself. Second, upon clicking my account image to log in, welcome text displays, followed by a blank screen with the mouse pointer displayed, then it takes me back to the login screen.

I was able to enable the hidden admin account during safemode, admin account logs in fine, but main account still refuses to log in.

I deleted my system restore points (Regrettably), so that rules it out.

The steps ive taken so far to address the problem:

Run in safe mode = Login success.
Run in safemode & CMD = Login Success

Enabled Hidden admin account = Login success for admin account, no login for main account.

Uninstalled a program i installed yesterday and tried logging in = Login failed.

Cleared out all temp files = Login failed.

Disabled all startup programs = Login failed.


I'm really out of ideas, and struggling to keep myself from just formatting.

All help is welcome.

Yesterday I removed my password cuz my young's brother detention was over, and I think I also removed the name of the account (the original account , admin, that I got when I bought the PC) Today, I turned on the pc , and I only saw the "Guest" account. I can login my old account :( I already tried lots of Command Prompt commands but I got Access Denied in all of them, as Im on the Guest account . I don't have permission to do anything . Please help me recover my old account with all my stuff!

Please help. I cannot log in to XP. The welcome screen comes up as usual, I hit my profile to enter, I get a brief glimpse of my wallpaper, then it closes back down to the welcome screen with the message "logging off"

Thing is, I think I may have disabled something yesterday while using startup database to deactivate some of my startup items, clearly, I have deactivated something important here. Frustratingly, I cannot reactivate the damn thing cos I cant get onto my PC, also, I dont know how to get the PC to boot up so I can choose to start in safe modem which I think will bypass the login screen. Only way I can get the choice of startup modes is by crashing the PC during loading, but then I have a USB keyboard that doesnt activate and, therefore, allow me to arrow up and choose safe mode.

This is driving me nuts, please help

You need to get into safemode and figure out what you turned off. Reboot the machine, as soon as the BIOS startup screen comes on start tapping the F8 key. A screen should come up that asks you what you want to do. Select safemode. As you have discovered, msconfig should not be taken lightly. If you don't know what something is, it's best to Google it first. Instead of using msconfig, try Mike Lin's starter control panel or Codestuff StarterMark

I just purchased an HP desktop. After setup, I kept getting dropped out to the login as soon as the computer was idle. I was told this was a registry problem and to go to safe mode and run SFC. That did not resolve the problem. Then I was advised to simply disable the login by going to RUN, keying in control userpasswords2 and unchecking the password requirement. I did that. It continues to drop back to the login screen as soon as its idle. (Btw, I tried this on my Sony laptop and it worked fine). Now the login gives an icon with my name and Underneath it says locked> switch user. I hit this and I get my name and the msg I'm already logged in. When I hit this, the desktop finally displays.I tired going back and checking and unchecking the password requirement and either way I get the same login notice. I tried running an MS registry fix as well as putting the computer into safe mode and choosing a repair. I also went to user accounts in the control panel and took my password out there. It seems to be recognizing two users from the login but there is only one established account. I tried going back to a password for administrator just to test it but I cannot. I don't have that option. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I can use it but its frustrating. Thx in advance.

Go to Control Panel>Power Options on the left select "Require a password on wakeup"

toward the bottom select "Don't require a password"

How long does it take to ask for your password when not using your pc?

Also since you have a desktop in the Power Options change your power plan to something else like high performance.

Hi,

I didn't notice and I entered my password when I was on cyrillic input.(I'm bulgarian) So I had to write my password with cyrillic letters. It was ok for me (I used to enter the password many times), but once I restarted my pc. Something happened and now I can't change the keyboard layout. Look, there is no option in the home screen:

This image is from the forum, but I can't take my own screenshot
I also tried changing the language with the key combination, but nothing happens. Windows doesn't recognize it.

So that's my problem. I know my password, but I can't login, because I can't type the correct letters. Have you got an idea about this situation?

Thanks
P.s It's strange, but when you try to do something from the boot menu, there is an option to change your keyboard input, unfortunately it is where I don't need it:

I am not able to login using the same password that I have had for over a year. I get the following message: User Profile Service failed the login; User profile cannot be loaded. I tried to reset the password, but it wouldn't let me know do that. I am not sure where to start. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

Try doing this

The User Profile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.

I think you forgot to activate Windows XP within the 30 day grace
period. I personally have done this on a few boxes and the way to
fix it is to do a Windows XP repair install. http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;315341
You may need the product key for Winxp, you will need to activate
Windows XP and to possibly reinstall the security updates when finished.

There is a small possibility that you have a virus or have unintentionally
deleted a registry key with the Spyware or Antivirus software.

You may want to try a free online virus scan

A:Having problem on login

Are you the only user on the machine? Was your account set up to be an Administrator account? Who else uses the system on a regular basis?
Make sure you scan your system for malware, this is a sign of an infection

I setup a user account and tried to set it as the default user but ended up not being able to log back in. Using safe mode I recreated my user account and tried to log in again. A message told me that it was unable to log me in as my user name but would log me in as the default profile. I was able to access the desktop but all of my old settings were lost. Is there any way to sign in as my origanal user name?

A:Login Problem

is the account still on the machine? go to control panel, choose "switch to catagigory view" if needed and/or choose "user accounts". Is the old account still listed?
