Vista - Interactive logon process initialisation has failed

The system will not load and fails with this message
Is there a definitive fix or course of action for this problem, as despite a number of searches we cannot identify one.
The system will not boot in Safe Mode - same symptoms
Guidance appreciated
Thanks

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Jonvee - thank you.  Have already seen the links you have identified, and was looking for a more recent solution ,if one exists, better still a Microsoft fix, for the problem that has existed for some 2 years.

If there is no better way forward, then will action as noted with a repair.
