HI

When I try to log in (XP home) on any user account I enter the password, the desktop background comes up momentarily and then I am logged off again.

I can log on in Safe Mode and have sent this in Safe Mode with Networking.

I don't have an XP cd as my pc came with a reload disk and system restore has had no effect.

Only things I can think of prior to this happening were that I installed Ad Aware 2007 to replace Ad Aware SE personal and that my daughter was on Limewire/MSN/etc.

I've run scans with AVG anti spyware, Ad Aware and Avira AntiVir personal - nothing in particular has come up (although Avira won't update - says scheduler is not loaded)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Run chkdsk?

Check Event Viewer for clues?

Hi Louis,
chkdsk didn't highlight anything.
The event viewer shows various messages but I'm not sure what to look for

When you are in the Event Viewer make sure that you have System log chosen, in the Event column you can right click on the error and then choose properties and there will be a description or the error. Pleasw copy these first three or four of these and post them here.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

FWIW: No point in listing successes from System tab of EV. That just reflects things working as they should.

I'm curious as to what Coracom is though...I have no corresponding references in my System tab of EV.

Hi

Coracom is the name of the computer - sorry!

Some of the descriptions here from system log:

Event 10005 DCOM got error "This service cannot be started in Safe Mode " attempting to start the service StiSvc with arguments "" in order to run the server:
{A1F4E726-8CF1-11D1-BF92-0060081ED811}

Event 7026 The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
Avg7Core
Avg7RsW
Avg7RsXP
avgio
avipbb
Ext2Fs
Fips
intelppm
NetworkX
prodrv06
ssmdrv

Event 7035 The Terminal Services service was successfully sent a start control.

Event 7036 The Terminal Services service entered the running state.

I've picked out a couple of others:

Event 17 AVGNTFLT successfully loaded

Event 7000 The PMounter service failed to start due to the following error:
Access is denied.

As a courtesy, I suggest that you go back and delete all that superfluous data from your preceding ultra-long post. It means nothing and poses a serious barrier to anyone following your situation.

We need all the participants that your post can attract :thumbsup:.

I think it's important to find out why your AV has problems.

Are you using a firewall?

A system without an XP CD...is pretty crippled as far as troubleshooting/repairing.

Yes to the firewall question - I use the firewall in my router.

My system came with a reload disk which I think returns it to factory settings.

Well...I'd really like to be able to suggest running sfc /scannow (to check for corruption of system files) but I don't know if you can do that without an XP CD.

No, I just tried it and it wants the XP CD (in order to replace files which are missing/corrupt).
