  AL E Mirror 19:24 07 Jun 2004

When I try to login to my xp home based computer I enter my password the then "loading your personal settings" appears then my blue wave background screen then "logging off" imediatly appears and it logs me off.
I have tried starting up in all 8 modes from safe mode to debugging mode each one lands me at the login page and has same effect as above

Try logging in with id Administrator and no password.

Boot from the Windows XP CD.

Let the Setup go through the first part of the Installation procedure.

When you come to the screen in which it says "Welcome to Setup." press Enter to Setup Windows XP.

Press F8 to agree to the End User License.

Let the Setup search your system for previous versions of Windows.

When the Setup is finished searching your system, select your Windows XP Installation and press the R key on your keyboard to start the Repair Procedure.

Setup will delete all major system files and then replace them with new copies.

You will have to download all of the updates from Microsoft Windows Update again because it replaces the files.
