I have already looked at the MS Knowledge Base answer stated as a 'solution' to Allpurple s problem titled "Login method has changed...". It does not appear to actually solve that problem, nor does it solve mine. The problem occurs ON STARTUP, before trying to start an Office 2003 application. Also, I have SP2 installed, as well as subsequent updates, so I would think that "re-installing SP1a" would be a step in the wrong direction.
I am able to select different users at the first login box, and get the appropriate desktop for each, but the error which comes up before any icons appear is the same in all cases (see title). After clicking on OK, there is no response of any kind. CTRL+ALT+DEL has no effect.
I need a real SOLUTION, one which get me back up and running!!
