Six days ago I loaded the new Yahoo Toolbar - with anti-spyware and anti-adware - anyway when I rebooted the system I got an error message associated with "userinit.exe" and it would not bring up the logon screen. I was able to access the system via Safe Mode with Networking and uninstalled the Yahoo Toolbar. I tried to reboot but was getting the same error (userinit.exe). Well, I ended up moving the file to the recycle bin and rebooted - after this point whenever I get to the signon screen it just says it's logging on, then logging off, saving my settings and then I'm stcuk at the signon screen. If I try to get in through Safe Mode it just does the same thing and knocks me back to the signon screen.
I used a bootdisk and am able to bring up a C: prompt, but I'm stuck now. I don't see any files named userinit.exe or wsaupdater.exe - CAN ANYONE HELP? I'm about ready to just reformat the hard drive. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated - I'm not that comptuer literate so whatever advice you have please dumb it down for me.
