Ok, here is a little background.
Customers computer kept restarting and would not go all the way into windows. Looked like some corrupt files because the hardware checked out just fine. So instead of trying to go in and delete or redownload a bunch of stuff I decided to do an install/repair. It performed beautifully and when I went to login (the normal Ctrl/Alt/Del way) the user name was there along with the Domain. AWESOME!! Now I put in the required information to login and a pop up came and said that Windows needs to be reactivated before I could login. I hit the OK button and the pop up went away. Nothing else then happened. The background image didnt change, nothing. The mouse just sat there in the middle of the screen (it would move no problem, so it wasnt locked up) and the background was just the default HP PC background. Nothing happened. Left it overnight and still nothing happened.
Any ideas would be much appreciated at this time :-)
