  brocky46 21:59 22 Jun 2004

comp now starts with log on screen and when i click to launch xp it shows the desktop for a brief sec then goes back to the log on screen.
i never use a log on as i am sole user.
was getting a lot of pop-ups so loaded ad-aware and spybot seach and destroy after which i cant get into comp now .
any help would be gratefully accepted

you may have deleted something using spybot and adaware.

reboot in safe mode (F8 key after HDDs detected) and select system restore, restore to a point before wou last used Adaware /Sybot.

If that does not work in safe mode type sfc /scannow with XP disc in drive this will repair / reinstall missing /corrupt files.
