xp log on automatically logs me off

  scarlet16 21:08 01 Dec 2010

I have had a hijack virus of some kind, in my attempts to clean it I ran a virus scan. After it cleaned it I restarted computer. Running Windows XP. Now when I log in, it just gives wallpaper-no icons, then logs me out imediately other times after minute or so. I can't figure out how to get command prompt or anything. It does the same thing in safe mode too. I would like to use computer again.

Try booting from your XP CD and doing a repair.

Recycle Bin & Restore Points.

Clear those before you run the AV.
