Windows XP Home logs in then logs out again

  bigal7777 18:01 23 Jul 2005

First of all I know that this laptop has viruses on it causing the problem - it lets me log in but then logs me straight out again. I think it's to do with userinit .exe and wsaupdater.exe files but when I use recovery mode to correct these I then have to reboot and I think the virus(es) undo my work. So how do I get out of this loop and get to the desktop so that I can scan and remove the virus(es).

Even in safe mode I get to the welcome screen and I have to select a user but when I do it logs in and then out again

hang in there perhaps someone else can offer a solution other than a re-install,the viruses you have are stopping you from accessing windows

Restart System and keep tapping F8, and select the option "Use Last good known configuartion" (the option is something on those lines.) and press enter. Your system may pause there for a few seconds and then Windows should load. Now try logging into the system.

The only thing I can think of is to get a Norton anti-virus disk and boot with it.
