I Have a XP professional pc. Cannot login even in safe mode or any other mode. When I select a user it starts to login then says saving settings and I'm back at (still at) the screen with the accounts to select (Administrator, Owner).
Doesn't matter what account I select its starts the login then says saving settings and its like I'm loggin back out. Never get to a desktop screen.
On the right hand corner on the welcome note there are 2 letters that I can't figure out (Af). If I insert the recovery CD I must format the PC and I dont want as I have lots of data, as it does not give me other options the PC is Sony Vaio laptop. I have ran live update and windows update yesterday and when it went to restart I had this problem. thank you for your advise. Could it be a virus or a worm? and how to resolve this issue without having to farmat the pc?
