Can anyone please give me some advice.
I have a pc that boots up ok to the log on screen (XP Home). However after typing in password the screen tries to move onto to open the user screen but keeps logging off then jumping back to the logon screen agsin. Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening and what I can do about it?
Thanks in advance!

Can you boot in safe mode (Tap F8 on boot) then do a system restore?, or try last known good configuration.
Or if you can get into safe mode and system restore doesn't solve the problem do a system file check. Start/run/type sfc /scannow (watch the space between sfc and/) you will need your XP disc.
