XP Does not get to Welcome logon screen, unable to logon

Q: XP Does not get to Welcome logon screen, unable to logon

When i boot up the system hangs at the blue 'Windows xp' screen, the 'Windows is starting' is missing and it goes no further, the logon screen does not appear so i can't get in. I have recovery console on and i can get into the drive by booting in from another drive/operating system. how can i rectify the problem?
This happens in safe mode as well, can anyone suggest how to recover from this.

Preferred Solution: XP Does not get to Welcome logon screen, unable to logon

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: XP Does not get to Welcome logon screen, unable to logon

if you have a windows xp cdrom the easy way around this is with a repair install of windows xp http://www.fujitsu-siemens.co.uk/rl/servicesupport/techsupport/software/windows/xp/Repair.htm

Hi everyone,
I am so glad to have found this forum and to see that others in the past with similar problems have had them resolved, looking forward to nutting this one out
ISSUE
The computer is a win XP with RAID that freezes the mouse and the keyboard if a mouse or keyboard button is touched at the logon screen.
The mouse works fine until a button is pressed, you can even click on a user but are unable to enter a password due to the keyboard and mouse freezing at this moment.
NOTE: originally happened with a USB keyboard and USB mouse, using PS2 keyboard and mouse.
BACKGROUND
I am writing about my fathers old computer which suddenly started “freezing up” at the logon screen, after he wasted weeks trying to get it to work he decided that it was a hardware issue and bought himself a new computer.
Since then I have proved that there was no hardware error by putting an extra HDD in and installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Everything functions fine under Ubuntu and the files are able to be accessed on the RAID.
DESIRED OUTCOME
While i can access and copy files as needed from the RAID i would like to return access to the win XP install and let my father use it again.
STEPS TAKEN SO FAR
I first attempted to run Live rescue CD's but they could not find the RAID drive.
- Bit Defender Rescue CD – Saw the ubuntu drive, no RAID
- Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 – Didn't see any HDD's.
So I ran the following AV programs from ubuntu 12.04 LTS:

A:Unable to logon, Win XP with RAID, KB & mouse freeze at logon screen

So you are able to run the machine  using PS2 keyboard and mouse.
 
 
Step 1: 
 
Download and install LogonFix
 
Click the Highlighted button.
 

 
When prompted select yes.
Allow the program to reboot your machine as well when prompted.
 
 
Step 2:
 
Download drivecleanup.zip to your desktop.
CLICK HERE to determine whether you're running 32-bit or 64-bit for Windows.
Once the determination has been made open either the 32-bit or 64-bit folder.
Right Click the .exe on the inside of the folder and run as admin.
A command prompt window will open telling you what has been removed upon completion.
Note: All usb devices must be removed from your machine during this step, except your keyboard and mouse of course. 
 
Step 3:
 
 

 
Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop.
Close any open windows
Double click the TFC icon to run the program. (Vista/7/8 Users, Right Click and select Run as Admin)
TFC will close all open programs itself in order to run
Click the Start button to begin the process
Allow TFC to run uninterrupted
Once its finished it should automatically reboot your machine, if it doesn't, manually reboot to ensure a complete clean.

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 have a Gateway MX6920 that had Windows XP preinstalled on it, I formatted and installed Windows 7. it only has the basic Windows 7 programs on it +Firefox, Google Chrome, TeamViewer, & an Anti-virus, but I have an ongoing issue where the computer completely freezes. the mouse doesn't work, no programs open, and I cannot bring up the task manager. if I press ctrl+alt+del it will still be frozen for about 5 more minutes, then give me the following message the "logon process was unable to display security and logon options when ctrl+alt+delete was pressed" and then just keeps being frozen until I cold boot shut down.

I scanned for viruses, ran sfc /scannow, with several programs but they all report clean

I am at a loss and this is a daily issue

Googling this error message brings up limited but unresolved issues

A:the logon process was unable to display security and logon options whe

according to the following link:

Failure to display security and shut down options. The logon process - Microsoft Community

it looks like the windows winsock needs to be reset. Hopefully doing that will solve the issue: to do that; do the following:

open a elevated command prompt(click start, programs, accessories, then right click on command prompt and select run as administrator) type netsh winsock reset hopefully that will help. If not that then in the same command prompt; type the following: netsh winsock reset

try one of the above commands and see if that helps to resolve the issue.

Hi At my company we have Lenovo L460 with windows 7 and Cisco anyconnect 4.3 - we have a sim card with 4G data connection to a service provider(Telenor).When I have logon screen for windows 7, I can see with FN+F8 that the wireless WAN is "on", but when I try to connect/logon with the cisco anyconnect "start before logon" module the cisco say that it can't see any internet connection. And I tried to wait for 3-4 minutes so all services where running, but no connection.... If I uses the Wifi connection then it just goes smooth... If I logon to windows 7 and then start the mobile data connection at logon to cisco anyconnect there is NO problem.. So are there somebody who can say that:1. Huawei does not support cisco anyconnect SBL?2. Lenovo does not allow you to start a mobile connection before you logon windows ?3. Or something? A lot of thanks in advance!!!!!!!! Regards niels

I have upgraded my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10. During the procedure a screen showed that Dell Access had to be removed before Windows 10 could be installed.
It was removed, and everything else went smoothly.
Now during logon, at the login screen, the system will take a while to initialize, and say "Failure to initialize". Luckily I am able to login using a password.
I want to use the fingerprint reader to login. Dell says that this system have no issues with upgrading to Windows 10, but not now. So how can I solve this problem?
I will like to do either the following:
1. Get the fingerprint reader working.
2. If it cannot work, I want the logon screen to stop trying to initialize and just use password to logon.

Also, I am getting 2-3 nos of the same user on the login screen. There is only 1 user on this computer but I see mostly 2 but sometimes 3 of the same on the lower left of the logon screen. I also want to remove the extras. Not an issue, but I think it may be related to the above as well.

Thanks.

Vanilla Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop running Windows Vista. It has never had a login account or password protection, and is only used in single user mode.

Yesterday, start-ups fine, no password. Today, I'm presented with the user logon widow prompting me for a password, and cannot logon to Vista!

No-one has meddled with the laptop. Don't know if SP1 was automatically downloaded
and installed - whatever the factory defaults were from Dell. I've not seen any references to this kind of issue on Vista, but have heard about a similar thing with NT.

Any suggestions how this could have happened?

Hey guys,

Here is an interesting situation I have. The other day my computer started running really sluggish. I decided to restart and when I did I noticed I couldn't log on to the machine. The Windows Login screen comes up but the curson doesn't come up to put a password in. Ultimately I'm stuck here. The screen at this point begins to flash. I started taking things apart and noticed I did have a bad fan. I swapped that out and still nothing worked. I have another PC so I decided to put my hard drive into that machine and luckily I was able to get onto it and pull off crucial data that I need.

At this point I'm thinking graphics card is messed up. However I put the hard drive into the PC that originally crashed. I was able to log on to the machine however the screen did blink every now and again. It wasn't as consistent as the "bad drive". After I was able to log on I shut that "bad machine" down again and put the suspect "bad drive in again. Still I'm unable to log in and the screen keeps flashing. It'll go black for a second come back up and be fine then flash again.

Right now I'm thinking...could be a bad video card however I don't understand why I cannot log on to the machine. Any suggestions?

Hello and Thank you so much for reading my problem.

I am unable to login to my desktop computer. When the computer is turned on the boot screen shows and the green bar shows that says Microsoft. When it is time for the logon screen where I would choose a user it remains blank and I can see the cursor as well as move it but nothing happens.
I have tried numerous things after searching for the problem online and none have worked. The computer sounds fine and is running but nothing happens. I can't boot using any version of safe mode or normal mode. I can get into the Recovery(I think is what it is called area), where you can choose to repair recover etc. Restore points keep giving me an error saying there is not enough memory but I know already there is and none of the restore points work. Wish I was smarter at fixing this.

To resolve this problem: on the remote computer, select Administrative Tools>Local Security Settings>Local Policies>User Rights Assignment, right-click on Access this computer from the network>Properties>Add Users or Groups, add everyone or any users you want to be able to access the computer from the network.

This fixed the problem on the interim and I could access my file shares and printers. However when I restart the machine or even log off nad log on again, the prblem resurfaces and all the user accounts Iand groups i wolud have added to Administrative Tools>Local Security Settings>Local Policies>User Rights Assignment, right-click on Access this computer from the network> will be removed and the field empty. hence I suspect spam the disallow remote access by editing these entries .

I am setting up a new Dell PC with Windows XP Home Edition with 256 megs of memory. I need to manually log onto a Novell network and automatically logon to Windows XP Home Edition. In other words, I do not want the windows logon screen to appear after I log onto Novell.

I have tried Microsoft's article Q315231 "How to Enable Automatic Logon in Windows". The auto logon to windows works, however, it seems to disable the Novell logon screen. When I boot up the pc no logon window appears (Novell or otherwise). I can however, manually log into Novell after XP is loaded.

I need to allow different Novell users to log in to one Windows XP profile. Is this possible? My network admin and I have not been able to figure this out.

I will not be able to test any suggestions until Monday, but I can supply additional information to any post this weekend.

Thank you in advance for everyone's efforts.

If no other variables in the network has changed it does sound like some kind of routing or DHCP mismatch which needs reconfiguring.

Would you know what I mean If I said can can you logon to a profile local to the client (i.e not on the server) and 'ping' the domain server IP address from a command prompt? Equally can you ping an internet address such as google.com?

Yet, 0.1 second after sucessfully logon, I got kicked back to the login screen. It seems the computer logoff my account automatically showing "Saving your account settings" and then it is waiting for password.

This repeats every time I try to logon, always got kicked back to welcome screen after 0.1 second.

I tried to logon as computer administrator too but no hope...

Then I tried to open up a safe mode by pressing F8. Well, Safemode exhibits in the same way as normal mode.

I also tried the command prompt option. The wried thing is I got the Welcome Screen instead of command prompt.

Basically, all options in the F8 menu lead me to that evil Welcome Screen and autmatically log me off after logon.

I absolutely have no control over my computer now. T__T I believe it's some sort of virus that's tricking me but I don't know its name. Would someone help me?

Thanks in advance
Joe

My method for automatically changing the Windows 7 logon/logoff wallpaper with every logon.

Step 1: Use one of the many guides on the web to enable custom/oem logon wallpaper, such as Brink's: Log On Screen - Change


Step 2: Copy whatever JPEG images you want to use for logon/logoff wallpaper in to C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds
You do not need to rename them -- just so long as their file extension is JPG or JPEG they'll be fine.


Step 3: Copy the following into C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds\rand.vbs

Code:
'=========================================
'rand.vbs
'Random logon/logoff wallpaper generator
'Author: [email protected]
'=========================================

Option Explicit
Dim objFSO, objFolder, objFile, colFiles
Dim min, max, result, aWallpaper(100)

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(".\")
min = 1
max = 0

Set colFiles = objFolder.Files
For Each objFile in colFiles
If ((LCase(Right(CStr(objFile.Name), 3)) = "jpg") Or (LCase(Right(CStr(objFile.Name), 4)) = "jpeg")) Then
If NOT (CStr(objFile.Name) = "backgroundDefault.jpg") Then
max = max + 1
aWallpaper(max) = CStr(objFile.Name)
End If
End If
Next

Two similar events have happened to me recently, all while logged into windows; I use only one account on this pc. On both occurrences the Screen flashes black; after that, in particular the first occurrence i was not able to access the admin account via
UAC; Group policy is set to ask for password upon elevation, good and well, but the password dialogue box said that the admin account was locked out. After rebooting, I was unable to login, with the exact same error appearing; A system restore fixed this issue.
Unfortunately I did not note the exact string of the error, and I see no references to it in event log except for this " Event 6000 The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> was unavailable to handle a notification event."  However
the error "description" was quite different error on this second occurrence.
Here are some event errors that occurred during the first error:

When I try to log into a user account in windows xp I get a completely blank window with yes/no buttons. no matter which button I press the computer logs in and immediately logs off.
It looked like a virus so I disabled all the startup items in msconfig(booted in safe mode*) and the probelm persisted after a restart.
*In safe mode I could not logon to a user account but I could get into the administrator's account.
Pease help.
 

A:unable to logon

You could try a repair installation. If that doesn't help, you could create a new account and copy the profile from the old account into the new.

But try a repair installation first so that you can at least try to save everything as it is.

I rebooted my W2K (sp4) PC today and once the GUI came up, it took a long time (5-10 minutes)at "windows is starting up" then again a long time at "starting network connections".

I finally got the login prompt (all I get is a username/password prompt and a check box for connecting via dial up networking, there's no domain box) and when I logged in as my user and also tried the administrator, I got a messaging saying Logon Message as the box header and then "The system cannot log you on now because the domain (and it listed the domain my PC was set to) is not available.

My PC isn't on a domain, it was set to standalone. Years ago it was part of a domain, but it's been working fine as a standalone PC for a long time.

I have a W2K CD handy and also have a W2K password and registry editor from here if there's anything I can do with that:
http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

Any ideas? I really need to get back into this PC.

Thanks in advance!
 

A:Unable to Logon

Me too, I've got the same problem, only with WinXP. The message is " The system cannot log you on now because the domain <name of computer> is not available" . The only difference is that there's no reference to 'starting network connections' during the bootup, only a long wait during the 'starting windows' stage.

Have you tried safe mode? Press F8 after the POST and select safe mode. Then have a look at any dodgy software you may be running, or anything recently installed.

I have 3 systems setup in the home thru networking. I have checked the router and the modem and there appears to be no problems. I can not connect to the internet with my system, comes up connecting to site 159.54.226.39 then states Error communicating with server. 12029. I have contacted my DSL company and they advised me it was a Mircrosoft problem. Can you please provide me some assistance?

Thank you,

A:Unable to logon to Web

Check your cable connections to the PC in question. Try reconnecting both ends of the cable to make sure there goo and tight or try plugging in the cable into another port on the router/hub.

You can also go to Network Connections in the Control Panel, right click on the connection in questions and choose Repair.

If that fails try another ethernet cable from one of the working computers.

Additional, can the computer access the other computers or the router? ie. browse or ping them?

how does one create, re: auto logon to ISP from startup or logon

In know you can create this from "Task Scheduler" or or by draging the ISP connection icon to "Start Up".

I'm missing a step, cause after loging on, the logon to my ISP appears and I still need to click "logon". It should be seemless.

Hi! I had my XP set up so there was no logon, just when I turned on my computer, went to the desktop. Well, after visiting a website which suggested to change passwords on XP, I did. Now, not only do I get a screen that I have to type in the password, I am also getting a "Logon Message" box, which is over the "Log on to Windows" box, which says: "LOGON MESSAGE; The system could not log you on. Make sure your User Name and Domain are correct, then type your password again. Letters in password must be typed using correct case".

Then, when I click "OK", I get the Log On to Windows Box, and just type in the password, which then takes me to the desktop.

Questions are: What could be the problem re: UserName and Domain? I did go to User Accounts and changed my name while I changed the password on the original account, did not add an account. I am the only user of my computer, nobody else.

And...what do I need to do to get it to just startup, bypass any logon and go directly to the desktop, like I had it set to do before? I cannot remember how the heck I did this before! But I have had it set to just startup, no logon for 2 years as I am the only one using it. Just changed the password, per the websites suggestion (BlackViper.com), as a security measure, hackers, etc. Did not realize it would change how I logon!

Thanx so much! This has been driving me crazy...liked how it was before, not any logon or messages! Have tried to figure it all ou... Read more
