I have a problem starting Windows XP Professional.

PC starts up normally. A few seconds after loading the desktop, a DOS-window appears with nothing in it. It disappears and a windows shows teh following message: "Can't load ...dll because workstation will shut down". After a few seconds the computer shuts down.

What could be the cause?

Can anyone solve this problem? thanks.

First let me welcome you to Bleeping Computer.
Can you boot into safe mode? If you can go to the Event Viewer in Administrative Tools and look for error codes.

Thank you.

Yes, I can boot in Safe mode. I will check the error codes this evening. I'll keep you posted.

If you can load into safe mode choose "Last Known Good Configuration" and see if that cures the problem.

I tried resetting to "last known good configuration" but this doesn't solve the problem either.

I noticed that someting is written in the first DOS-command-window that appears. It says "C:/Documents ans Settings/shutdown /s /f"
