You are probably backing up your data—but how and where? Ransomware is on the rise and there are variants that specifically target backups. Read on to discover why off-site is the way to go.

I have an easier soultion!!!!

1)      Boot to the recovery console
2)      CD c:\windows\system32
3)      Copy userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe  (You may receive a file not found error, just ignore this.)
4)      Reboot to safe mode and log in as Administrator
5)      Edit the following registry key

HKEY-LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Change the userinit value "c:\windows\system32\userinit.exe,”

The value will probably read something like this:  "c:\windows\system32\userinit.exe, c:\windows\system32\userinit.exe,”

Enjoy!!!

6)      Reboot

I had come across an issue in which Creative Labs Audigy 2 Sound Card causing this kind of issue. (found in dell support site)

You can try downloading and updating this file if you have this kind of sound card.

Filename: R75304.EXE

have you scanned for viruses and malware? read here for help on that:

http://www.paulscomputerservice.net/index.php?body=./software/malwareinstructions.php

have you checkout all of your start-up items? goto Start Menu > Run > Type "msconfig"

choose the start-up tab.

Hijackthis might be better so you can post a log and let us look at it.
