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: I Can't Logon To My Computer Help!

Do you have an XP install CD by chance? You could do a repair installation. I had to do that very same thing last month and it worked like a charm. Programs and personal documents were not affected.

Windows 2003 server local policy keeps loosing the users that I set so that it can be browsed accross the workgroup. I can browse the server from the other pcs in the workgroup only for a few minutes until the policy looses the users all by itself. I cannot find anything that can explain what's going on.

If you see this message the following should be done on the computer containing the shared files:

Download the following and install it

after installation is complete, click on: Start, All Programs, Windows Resource Kit Tools, Command Shell

Then enter the following commands. (Attention: they are case sensitive.)

net user guest /active:yes

ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

The first command enables network access for Guest, the two subsequent ones change two different policies to allow network access for Guest.

200+ Windows 7 Pro machines, similar configuration, 1/4 of them x86, 3/4 x64.
Encountered 6 such machines having this problem: After a restart, user logon stuck at a black screen. In Windows event application log there is an event 'The Windows logon process has failed to spawn a user application'. This application is an in-house developed
application and is called at winlogon\userinit registry key.
A restart into Safe Mode, first logon will experience an auto-restart, then second logon ok. Subsequent logon into normal Windows is ok.

Setting the group policy setting to User Account Control: Behaviour in Admin Approval Mode to 'Elevated without prompt' doesn't solve the problem.

All machines are in workgroup.
There seems to be a relationship between security hardening (through local security policy) and this behaviour but not conclusive because some of the machines encountering the problem had not been hardened.
When I booted a machine under MS DART and change the userinit registry key to call userinit.exe instead of the in-house application, subsequent user can logon correctly under normal mode. Then changing it back to call the in-house application will again
logon into black screen.
Based on these observations, can anyone share what Windows does during Safe Mode to recovery such problem? under what circumstances does it auto-restart after a logon? Can local GPO enforcement corrupt the default user profile?

I switched to a backup computer after my current one died. It was bringing up two user accounts, one of which I do not know what it is, and apparently it was trying to log into that one first, as it was in the box and it said the password which I had not entered, was incorrect. I believe I changed the account to my Microsoft Account and entered the password, I got in. However I don't like seeing that second account on there with the computer trying to boot up into it first so I tried to get rid of it. That account did not show up in my user accounts list, but google found a way to see all the other accounts via cmd prompt. In an attempt to get rid of it, I clicked "disable" on the account I did not recognize. This was not the administrator account. Upon reboot, both accounts still show up on the screen but now neither will let me in. It still tries to use the account I don't recognize and tells me the password entered is wrong, despite me not entering a password. Using my Microsoft Account, it now says the password is incorrect. However, I can still get into that account with the current password on my laptop. Trying to dig into this, the option to change the password comes up, but since I have the laptop automatically boot up without entering the password, I don't want to mess that up and not have any access. Actually, I guess that means I have it set up to boot without a password and changing it supposedly won't affect it...is that correct? Do you thin... Read more

Every time I turn on my computer (lenovo g530 running windows xp) There is no logon screen. Instead it pops up a message that says C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Theme\Nocturnal.Theme. Not enough quota is available to process this command. Everytime I push OK it just pops up again. This includes safe mode and other modes.

We had a computer sitting here in a closet at the school where I work that was like all the other pcs in the lab. I plugged it in to see what might be wrong with it. The log in screen for Windows XP Home shows up like all the others (they were donated to us). The same two accounts show up, one with admin abilities, one for students. When I attempted to log on it gives me an error message that says "unable to log you on because of an account restriction." Crt-alt-del to change the log on method gives me a the same message. All the others with the exact same specs came up fine. I tried going crt-alt-del 2x and typing "admin" and leaving the password blank hoping someone never changed it when it was installed. Didnt work. The account restriction message comes up on both accounts listed in the logon page.

Any ideas?

Ok new information... when booting to safe mode, the accounts listed show "Administrator" and then the admin account mentioned previously, but does not show the student account that the regular boot shows... thats weird. I am assuming that I can change something in safe mode if I can get into the administrator account.

On return to boot in normal mode, the only two accounts that show up on the Windows XP logon screen are the 2 accounts mentioned earlier (including student).

Hello all,

I am working on an acer desktop computer. It is currently running Windows XP 32bit with SP3. This is my boss's computer. He said that the computer would run for a few hours then shut off because it was too hot. I told him to clean out the computer (he knows enough about computers to clean it without breaking something). Now the computer will go into hibernation about 30 seconds to a minute after logging on.

I ran a live linux CD to see what the temperature of the computer was. I saw that the GPU was running at 93 degrees celsius. Next I opened up the computer myself, unplugged and plugged in the hdd and ram, reapplied thermal glue and cleaned the CPU and GPU, and just did an overall clean inside the case (he missed some areas like fans). After doing all that I got the temperature down a lot to a safe level.

The problem was still happening after all that, so I disabled hibernation. Now instead of hibernating after logging on, it goes into standby. I don't think this is a heat issue anymore, because I have the temperature at normal levels. I did run tests on the hdd, ram, and cpu and they all checked out. I have no idea what is going on. Thank you to anyone who has any suggestions in advance, I'll be checking this often to see if anyone replies. Ask me any questions if you'd like. Thanks!
 

A:Computer goes into standby after logon

Something else that might be helpful, if I wait at the log on screen, it does not go into standby. Only after selecting a user, then waiting the 30 seconds to a minute will it go into standby. After it does this it will not wake from standby, so I have to hold the power button to shut it off.

Hey, when I try to boot my computer, it seems fine and then there is this option where I can choose to boot my computer normally or in safe mode, but in both options the screen goes black and the only thing I see is my cursor (I can move my cursor)

If it helps, a long time ago I changed the msv1_0.dll file so I could log in to the Admin user without a password, but then I wanted to change it back so I deleted it and put the old one in there and then the error occurred. I tried changing it back to the admin msv1_0.dll file, but I still had the problem I had before...

Hi,

My desktop (which has winXP) was infected by some trojan virus, so I downloaded AVG free edition, and ran it. It asked me to reboot to complete the check. I've restarted my computer a few times and it goes to the welcome page. I click on my user name, it says "loading your personal settings", flashes my desktop background and then goes right back to the welcome page and says 'logging off', and i'm right back to the blue welcome page.

AVG found a whole bunch of infections (most of them were related to the virus) and one that it couldn't get rid of (...system32\userinit.exe or something like that). Did it delete something important from my system, and if so, how do i get it back? I have no idea where my XP cd is, but I do have my laptop and internet and a usb key (if i need to download something and put it in to my desktop).

Thanks so much for any help!

You'll need to find your Windows XP installation disk. It's the only way we can help you. Once you find your XP installation disk:

You will need to go into the Recovery Console. To do this, follow these steps:Insert your Windows XP CD into your CD drive.
Shutdown your computer.
Turn on your computer, and immediately press f12
Keep on rapidly pressing f12. You should get a one time boot screen. Use the arrow keys and choose your CD rom drive. Note: If you get to the windows login screen, you have gone too far. Shut the computer down and try again.

You should then get a box that says: press any key to boot to the cd...
Make sure you press a key quickly!
You should now get a blue screen with white text. Allow the CD to load. This may take some time.

So here is the low down, I have my desktop PC running Windows 7 Ultimate. I also have a cheap old Asus netbook running Windows XP home edition SP3 (not much on it so it runs ok).

So far I have been able to access the shared files folder from my netbook on my PC. I can also detect the PC under the Workgroup tab of 'My Network Places' on the netbook.

However whenever I double click on the 'Richyv-pc' icon in the Workgroup folder is comes up with an error message that states:

"\\Richyv-pc is not accessible. You might not have perrmission to use this network resource. Contract the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer."

Hey everyone.

My computer starting freezing on me yesterday. I can log on with no problems, and everything works fine for about 15 minutes then everything just locks up. The cursor still moves but I can't do anything with it. No success with the keyboard either. Anything I have running stops as well and I'm forced to manually restart.

I have checked my event log and there are no errors, warnings or even information logged for applications or system at the time it freezes. There were 3 system errors that show up on startup and have been recurring for as far back as my event log shows (the beginning of this month). I will include them with this post. I believe event error 3 is from an old Linksys wireless router and/or Linksys network card that I used to have installed, but I uninstalled all those files, so I'm not sure if I missed something. I have also been getting the BSOD randomly for about a month now. I will include my last minidump too.

My last virus scan was two days ago. I have Norton 2008, and it came back clean. I haven't been able to run it since the freezing started since my computer won't stay operational long enough for me to do so.

I have run a check disk at startup, I have also uninstalled some of the more recent programs that I have installed on my computer.

It first started when i only started an Ad-ware scan and it said it found a malicious file. Well I came to find out that it messed around with the registry of my windows32 userinit and I was having the problem when I logged on got immediately logged off, a more detailed explanation it goes to the user login i click on my user and it says loading preferences logging in and then shows my desktop background for a good 2 seconds and then starts logging off and saving preferences. I talked to my brother in law and we found out how to fix this but I now ran into a more serious problem. When I was trying to fix it before the call it wouldn't run in any safe mode and the "change to last good config" didn't work either I shut my computer off entered my motherboard setup by pressing the DEL button just to see if i could change any user login things. Now I couldn't find anything and left it how it was no changes and now went to call my brother in law i come back we go to fix the problem from my sisters comp(which i'm on now) and I go back and exit the motherboard setup and it just goes black, i restart it and it won't boot or anything its just black and my monitor isn't even saying anything about no input signal like it does when i first turn it on or off, its like its connected but no data is being started up.

Now sorry for a long story I figured I should be detailed because right now I have no idea what this problem could be because I haven't done anything to cause this. ... Read more

Hi

Strange request, Is it possible to change a computers description using a login script?

We would like to have the users username as the computer's description when the user logs on. We use roaming profiles and often different people use different desks so this needs to be able to change easily via login scripts.

Could anyone help?

Thanks

 My windows 7 computer keeps trying to logon to my router.  It is not successful, but it's so persistent that the router often hangs.  At that point, I have to reset the router so that my other devices can access the internet.
 
I run Avast antivirus, and it says the computer is clean.  
 
I've tried running MalwareBytes, and now it says the computer is clean as well.
I've tried Sophos, TDSKiller, RougeKiller, and HitmanPro - but none seem to be helpful.
 
I've moved the computer behind an old router that I configured on a different subnet - it continues to attack it, but at least my other devices don't suffer.
 
I've pasted the logs from the router below, as well as both logs from FRST64.  Any help sure would be appreciated.

I'm helping my friend with his computer when it starts it says it has a problem windows can not find 'logon.exe'. I assume this is a virus so I downloaded AVG spybot and malwarebytes. I set them to scan came back in 20 min and the computer locked up. I tried to move the mouse then it started a non stop beeping sound and would not stop so I had to hold the power button to restart. It still locks up after about 20 min. I tried to boot in safe mode and got a blue screen of death 0x0000007b (0xF789E51c, 0x0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000,) I hooked the drive up to another computer and scanned it with malwarebytes and AVG. AVG found a few things and removed them. malwarebytes found a few things and said some things could not be removed please restart the computer so I restarted and then put the drive back into his computer and tried the whole thing over again without any change.

Whats the next step?

Hi everyone,
 
I've had this problem for a while now. Whenever I startup my computer, the My Computer folder will open automatically on the desktop (see the startupfile.jpg). It's gotten kind of annoying since I've spent so much time trying to figure out how to stop it.
 
You can see what my msconfig startup tab looks like in the msconfig.jpg picture attached.  The last item that's just cutoff is TrayMenu from Microsoft.  I've also downloaded a program called Autoruns that seems very helpful, and I've attached a picture of what it tells me is opening on logon in the logon.jpg picture attached.
 
I've also noticed that if I click the My Computer file just as it opens, it will open again a few seconds later while everything is still loading up, so it's like something is forcing it open for some reason.  I've been looking around and someone else said the problem may lie in Adobe Bridge CS6 (which I have), but I can't seem to prove that.
 
I'm running Windows 7 64-bit on a Lenovo Ideapad Y580. Any help is appreciated!

Trouble started the other day. My computer had a virus. I kind of remember its name... SSMS32.exe (I think that's also a function program IN the computer as well... I'm not sure.) Well, I started getting some annoying pop ups every minute or two saying I had a virus on my laptop (my wallpaper was even locked, displaying a warning message). I don't trust random popup messages like that, so I quickly opened an antivirus program my friend who works in IT gave me. Ran it, it detected the said virus/whatever mentioned above and some trogans.

This antivirus has always come through for me, so when it asked me to reboot my computer, I did. Just before it logged off, I saw my wallpaper so I figured the issue was solved. But when the computer turned back on, it went to this screen telling me there was an error, asking to if I wanted to turn on the computer in safe mode (various other options, too), and it had a 30 second count down that would reboot my computer once it finished.

So I told it to enter safe mode and my laptop turned off. I turned it back on and it seemed to run okay. Windows loaded and I got to what looked like my main screen (desktop, wallpaper). Then it went to the screen (I don't know what it's called)--it's blue, has your user icon and name, where you're redirected if you log off. I try to enter my computer again, it shows my desktop for a second, then logs off almost immediately.

Then I tried to load in safe mode (apparently it wasn't before) through my use... Read more

My computer is having this weird problem where when I finish logging in, the desktop would just be purely blank. The mouse cursor does show up and i can control it, but none of the normal desktop things would show up (wallpaper, taskbar, icons...). If I hold down the power button and force shutdown, and then go into the safe mode when i start up, all would be normal (except for the wallpaper of course due to the safe mode). If i restart from there i would be able to get my desktop back. However if i reboot the problem comes back.
 
Also, the computer lags significantly when the desktop is gone since the task manager usually goes to "not responding" state.
 
Is there a way i can fix this problem? Restore point would not be an option since the problem started about two years ago when it was not very serious. I tried to locate the problem but explorer.exe and dwm.exe are both there...
 
Please help!!!!

A:Computer Blank Screen After Logon

Could be a problem with corrupted system files. If you can get to a command prompt, type cmd in the search bar, right click the command prompt icon, select run as administrator, and run the command sfc /scannow.
 
If that doesn't work, try running from a clean boot. Don't try this if you're not comfortable with advanced level troubleshooting. Also be aware, this is a time-consuming methods.
Click the Start button, type msconfig in the search box, press enter.
Click the Services tab, check "Hide All Microsoft Services" and click "Disable All" if it is not grayed out.
Click the Startup tab, click "Disable All" and click OK.
Restart the computer. When the System Configuration Utility window appears, check the "Don't show this message or launch the System Configuration Utility when Windows starts" box and click OK.
If the issue disappears in the clean boot environment, turn half the Microsoft services back on, and restart the computer. If the problem doesn't recur, turn the other half of the Microsoft services back on. Once the problem reoccurs, turn services off and on to narrow it down more specifically.
 
Or, you can just launch the clean boot troubleshooter from here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/331796
 
Hope that helps. But if this has been going on for a while now, it may be hard to pin down at this point.

I have a desktop and laptop PC - both recently upgraded (without my permission) to Windows 10. The desktop was previously running Windows 7 and the laptop Windows 8. I have created a homegroup and both PCs have joined it. All sharing options are turned on. I was previously sharing a printer that is connected to the desktop with the laptop and all was well. After the upgrade, I could no longer print from either PC. After reinstalling the printer on the desktop, I can now print from that PC but the laptop will not see the printer. I did the following:
1) Open Control Panel, Devices and Printers, Add a Printer
2) Windows searches for devices and finds none
3) Click on "The printer that I want isn't listed"
4) Click on "Select a shared printer by name", then click "Browse"
5) Windows displays the names of the desktop and laptop PCs
6) Click on the desktop PC and the following message appears:
VOSTRO not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.
Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.

Suggestions?

NOTE:
On both PCs, when I select Control Panel, Homegroup the following message is displayed:

When I click on "Install printer" on either PC, nothing happens.

A:Windows 7 computer is trying to logon to my router

You need to start a new topic in the malware removal forum.
 
Please follow the instructions in the Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation Guide starting at Step 6.
If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running FRST which will create two logs.
When you have done that, post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team.Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log(s) along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. If you cannot produce any of the required logs...start the new topic anyway. Explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happened when you tried to create them. A member of the Malware Removal Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.
After doing this, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can close this one.
 
DO NOT bump your new topic. Wait for a response from one of the Team Members.

We are trying to enable SSO with Smart Cards for Windows 7 and eventually 10. During logon users can see up to six certificates available for logon. This is going to cause confusion for the users. Selecting only the correct certificate will allow the user
successful SSO. It appears that this MAY be the certificate with the Enhanced Key Usage (EKU) that contains 'Smart Card Logon (1.3.6.1.4.1.311.20.2.2)' and has the text under the box where you enter your PIN that says 'Windows will try to connect to the network'
I found an article, below, that gives more options for certificates but these don't seem to offer what I'm looking for.
