My computer has not allowed me to function in normal mode recently because Windows XP logs me off my account right after I log in. I am able to boot into safe more and have run Malwarebytes, which found two Trojan viruses in my registry data, specifically HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Currentversion\winlogon\userinit. I cannot copy the actual log from the computer because I am not able to access the internet in safe mode on the infected computer. I quarantined and deleted the two infected files using Malwarebytes, but am still not able to log successfully into normal mode after the removal of the files. I tried to restore my system to two previous points without any luck. Any direction you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Boot into Safe Mode. Right click on the C drive in Explorer and go Properties > Tools > Check Now (under Error Checking). Check both boxes then click "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer. Restart the computer and Error Checking will run automatically after the restart. After itís finished it will restart into Windows automatically.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

That didn't seem to work. Any other suggestions?
