I have done all that I could.
I have tried System Restore, and the pre-installed Dell program that reverts the entire computer to factory state and reinstalls personal files in the Music, Documents, Videos etc area.
But no matter what, every time I log on to the computer, the same error message is displayed.
"Interactive logon process initialization has failed.
Please consult the event log for more details."
I would also like to add that the computer shut down normally the last time I used it, and nothing went unresponsive in the process. Everything that I've read have suggested a clean factory reset, but I don't have the Windows recovery disks people claim. I CAN however, access the Startup Repair menu, but that is it.
I don't know what to scan my computer with, or what to do at this point. All safe modes display the same thing, and all I can access is the repair menu.
I'm hoping I can find a solution for this from the excellent computer experts here.
