Here's what happened. We use Avaist. The other day, a window came up and said that Avaist was expired and we needed to enter a new registration code, but Avaist was last installed in Nov., and should have expired yet. Well, sometime between it expired and we reinstalled it, something must have gotten in, because when we rebooted, the boot scan came up and just about every file that it scanned was put in the chest and then it said the chest was full, so we escaped out and rebooted. Now it loads up to the user name/password login box, you hit ok, and it says loading personal settings, and then immediately logs back off to the login box. Does the same thing when trying to load in safe mode and from last good known configuration.

Please help.

Have you tried using System Restore from a command prompt in Safe Mode to return to a previous state before your problems began?
