I am currently experiencing a problem with my Windows XP computer; whenever I try to log into my account, I get logged out only seconds later. The furthest I have gotten to being fully logged in was seeing my desktop background for a very brief moment.

I have tried logging in normally, along with trying to use Safe Mode to log into my account and the generic Admin account that is available upon using that mode.

For what it matters I just rid my computer of the nasty Spyware Protect 2009 yesterday, not sure if that has anything to do with it or not.

So I'm wondering what can I do to fix this problem. Thank you for your time.

it can be the userinit.exe. do you have a virus called BlazeFind? There is a tool from symantec to remove it.

Well to be honest about it: I don't know if I have that virus or not; I don't believe so because I scanned my computer with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware before I logged off my computer last night and it came up clean.

I'm curious as to what I can do without being logged into my computer that could possibly solve this problem, like at the setup menu(Where you can go into the various modes [Safe, Safe with CMD Prompt, etc.])

Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Type: chkdsk /r

It's important to have a space before the "/".

To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

So, I tried doing this process and upon first getting to the point were it was going along and recovering stuff it got up to 75% and then it would suddenly get booted down to 50%. But I was being persistant with it and I didn't turn it off, just hoping for the best.
Well evidently my persistance worked out and it got to 100% right after getting to 75% for the third time. But irony seems to have struck and evidently this didn't solve the problem, I logged in and saw my backround and felt some sense of joy that I've been missing for the last week, but that was soon lost as that went away and was replaced by the log in screen telling me I was logging out.
I'm hoping that there is a solution to this issue aside purging my hard drive and enjoying that wonderful experience.

But thank you for trying to help out with that solution, its quite appricated.

Try selecting "Last known good configuration" from the Safe Mode menu.

So just tried doing Last Known Good Configuration after I just went through the recovery thing again. Nothing still =/

Thank you for your very swift replies with this issue though.

A repair install should fix it:

That you very much in your helpfulness and your very swift replies.
