Hi Experts,
I have a laptop with a strange behavior.
The user deleted suddently a sys file.
Now when you login , imediately the user will be logged out.
The same in safe mode and with the administrator.
Any ideas how to solve this error ?
The machine is Windows XP SP3

Do you know which sys file was deleted? If so you might be able to use recovery console to put it back again.

I would suggest you to repair your Window using the OS cd.

Sounds like it's broken the winlogon process. Run a repair from the windows cd to fix.

I think it is an oem installation, where to find the cd ?

If it's a dell then there should have been a CD provided with the machine. But many manufacturers don't supply install cd's.

Some have the recovery files on a seperate partition and you just press a certain key on boot to access it

The problem there is, it's likely to simply re-install the entire machine to factory defaults rather than give you any options for repair etc. You're better off trying to find a Windows XP cd

This is my solution:
I booted to recovery console, typed in "copy D:\i386\userinit.ex_ c:\windows\system32\userinit.exe" hit Enter, then rebooted and all was well.

So, you used the recovery console to copy the missing system file back onto the PC. Which was what I suggested in the first comment.

sorry I didn't know which file it was.
I got the hint from another expert.

I did the solution myself, not 100% from an expert.
