Hi Guys,

I have a problem to logon to my WindowsXP pro sp2.

After i login using my/any account on the machine the logon grants access and then during "Applying your personal settings" the machine is logging off. ( So it directly logoff after login )

I already tried :
-safe mode, but this is also not working.
-strg-key
-userinit.exe copy to wsaupdater.exe
-not network connected

Does anybody knows how to solve this problem?

(maybe i should say that this happened directly after my machine was migrated to another domain, but also local users have that problem)

You may have to check with the current domain administrators to see if your accounts or machines have "logon times" specified in active directory. It may also be due to an nVidia driver! http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=886212
Stop or turn off the NVIDIA Display Driver service (Nvsvc32.exe) on the client computer

I'd say you should have a domain admin check the pc and user account for "logon" times being set in active directory. If the pc is accessable via the lan, the admin can open the computer managment interface to have a look around also. If the firewall is enabled, then they might not be able to. If they can't figure it out, the HD may have to be removed and your data backed up. HD removal isn't the only option, Ghost or simialr can be used.

This spyware has also been known to cause the "logon logoff loop" http://www.winxptutor.com/wsaremove.htm
