After I login to win xp, it was immediately logged out. it takes me to loading user preferences, then immediately to saving user settings without even showing the desktop.
It does NOT show any errors like paging file missing or virtual memory low.
:( Pls help me to fix this problem

1.Go to safe mode
2. Delete the existing error causing account and create a new one n then try!

One thing more is it sime activation problem?

i think i know the problem its a virus i guess it has made a registry key under all user and it logs u out every time u boot
i had written 1 like this its very stupid

-=-=-=virus.reg=-=-=-=
REGEDIT4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\microsoft\windows\Current Version\Run]
virus = shutdown -s -f -t 30 -c "this is a virus that shutsdown ur computer on every startup within 30 secs"
==========end virus.reg============

well this will shutdown the computer the 1 i think ur infected with logs u off this reg file might have been packed under a batch file or a .exe file and u accidently ran the file

No this can not be a virus. Because "Run" entries in the Registry are not executed while you boot in Safe Mode.

This problem can occur if there are some incorrect information about disk drives in Windows Registry.

well i read a trick somewhere, i m not sure its the case with u but may be it works. there was a shortcut for "logoff" and put in startup. make sure u dont have this case... but how dou fix it when u cant login. cos dos entry needs pwd as such.

i guess a repair install is a better option as mentioned by somebody else.

when verifying with win xp cd it doesn't show any repair instal or any other option. during boot up it reads cd and it goes to os selection menu.
