I have been working on this problem for over a day now, and I have gone as far as I can.  As stated, my accounts log off right after log on, but safe mode works.  Many sites say my userinit.exe registry is wrong, but i have checked it and it is fine.  I have also followed the instructions here to repair the registry anyway (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545/), but that allows me to logon to the administrator once the first time.  As soon as I restart, the problem occurs again.  I can also access the recovery console fine.  This is XP Professional.
 
Either I reinstall windows and spend days reinstalling software, work in safe mode forever, or get some help :)

some quick suggestions,

1. From safemode try doing a System Restore to that date when the system was working fine.
2. From safemode, try creating a new user account, restart and try to login in normal mode with this account.
3. Remove all the external hardware stuff, like any usb modem, printers, scanners etc etc which cannot be load in safemode.

Post back the results :)

Good advice above. If those suggestions have not fixed the problem, please do the following (while logged into safe mode):

Download and run HijackThis from http://www.hijackthis.de/
Copy-and-paste the resulting log back to that same web site (not here)
Click on "Analyze", and then click on "Save Analysis" at the bottom of the next page.
Finally post a link here to the saved analyzed page.

This may help identify if some malware or misconfiguration is to blame.

3. Remove all the external hardware stuff, like any usb modem, printers, scanners etc etc which cannot be load in safemode.

regsvr32 /u "%Systemroot%\System32\omniband.dll"

--omniband.dll not found, did COPY USERINIT.EXE WSAUPDATER.EXE to no effect.
Userinit registry is correct.

I believe I have fixed it, by looking here http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/WinXP/Q_20972739.html, I got the idea to change my userinit registry from ueerinit.ese to explorer.exe, and now it works. :)
