Corrupt Winlogon.exe or driver issue with your USB device. If your winlogon.exe is damaged
 the upgrade/repair install is the only option I know of that works reliably.

The other issue I see is the "applying updates" at each boot. Try using safe mode or your vista disk to perform a system restore to before the updates.
