Every time I boot up my computer I put in my password and it acts like it is going to log on, but it just logs me off again. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem? I am using windows xp. I have tried to use the recovery console and I type 1 then I get C:Windows: and I am not sure what to type there.

%90 of the times i have come across this problem there was a virus on the pc causing the issue (or after effects of removing a virus), a couple of times it was by corruption on the hdd, the second we can check relatively easily. when in the console after getting to the prompt type in
chkdsk /r /p c:
depending on disk size this can take a while, the other issue is more complicated but here are some good links to help articles

This one is probably the easiest for you to do as it uses a system restore point

Can you boot into Safe Mode?

Excellent option and link

Here's what to do: First, get the Windows XP CD you used to install your operating system. By the way, this routine only works with Windows XP, either Professional or XP Home Edition. If you don't have a bootable XP CD, get one and have it with you at all times

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
