I have run across a situation where a person logs on to a computer, but after the computer goes through the traditional screens of booting up....it immediately logs back off. It does not Shut Down....just logs off. When they log back in, it logs off again. The user tries a different user name/profile to log in and it does the same thing. The user even logs in as the administrator, and it does the same thing.
I have found a few answers to this issue, but this blog will be to give the quickest answer. Any other answers may takes hours and only have a chance of working. Here is the result of about 3 hours of trouble shooting...to come to this answer than should only take you less than 15 minutes.
Find a computer with the same operating system.
Copy off 1 file to the desktop. It is:
The best bet is to do a search for this file. The file could be located in about 3 different places on a computer.
Copy the file to the desk top....then note where the other locations are at.
Turn off the computer.
Remove the hard drive from the problem computer and make it a secondary(or slave) hard drive to the one you were just on(with the good files)
Copy/paste the files from the desktop to the same locations as your notes.
Turn the computer off and put the hard drive back into the original Computer.
That is it. That should do it.
***On a side note***if you can get that userinit file to a CD or thumb drive...it is possible that Windows will let you overwrite the original without removing the hard drive. You may want to try that first....it would make the solution even quicker.
