I have been infected with numerous viruses and have run most of the programs on this site. Among the problems appears to be downloader viruses, but the current problem is that as soon as I attempt to log on the computer immediately logs me back off and returns me to the log on screen. This happens in safe mode as well. I had previously removed some viruses associated with the winlogon.exe file, but apparently not all of them.

The log on screen isn't the typical one I get in XP, but rather similar to one if you have locked the computer from the task manager. Please help!

I am currently using another computer.

Hi Bentley306,

I did find this page with a similar problem to yours, go down to #9 he found a solution, it may help you. You will need a windows cd. Seems like a virus is corrupting the registry.

Thanks for the responses, the problem does appear to be the userinit.exe file. I tried to enter recovery using my XP disc, but the computer started asking for my Administrator password. Unfortunately, I have no idea what that password is (I only know the password I normally use, I can't remember if I even set the Admin password myself). What can I do at this point (besides reinstalling everything and losing all my data)?
