I got some virus surfing the net. I brief rundown of my problem. I have windows XP media center w/SP3. At first when I logged on I could not see my icons or task bar, just my desktop with nothing else. I tried alt-ctrl-delete and my task manager was disabled. I got that part fixed and ran Ad-ware through the task manager and it found a few viruses that I cleaned up and my task bar and icons came back. It asked me to reboot so I did. It must have deleted or changed something in my log in/off loop because when I logged back in it logs me off in the matter of seconds. I tried with the admin account and in safe mode with nothing working. Next I got on my dad's computer and searched some websites and I came across some suggestions to boot from my xp cd-enter recovery-go to my c:\windows\system32-copy userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe-(it said one file copied)-exit-reboot your computer and you should be able to log in-then got to phase II and regedit.

But my problem is after I copied the exe files listed and exited and restarted my computer, I logged in and it logged me right back out so something is still wrong. I have read other fixes that mention going through a network computer and edit the registry, but I dont have one so this is not an option.

So basically, I have done all I know how or have read, other than a hammer, and I still cant log in. Looking for some guidance please!

Thanks a million,
