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.

Copy this file:

C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\userinit.exe

into this directory:

C:\WINDOWS\System32

Then reboot.
